Led by some of Australia’s national mental health and suicide prevention organisations, the #YouCanTalk campaign aims to empower and increase confidence when it comes to talking about suicide.

Whether it is for conversations with friends, family, colleagues or acquaintances, #YouCanTalk also highlights the resources available to support these conversations.

The main message is you don’t need to be a clinician, a GP, or a nurse to check-in with someone you are worried about.

Trust your instincts and access suicide prevention resources to assist you in having the discussion.

The #YouCanTalk landing page is hosted on Life in Mind, a national digital gateway providing organisations and communities access to suicide prevention information, programs, services, resources and research.

Check out Everymind’s resources below, including our Conversations Matter resources, which provide practical tips and tools on how to talk about suicide in safe and effective way.
