With three weeks to go until the National Suicide Prevention Conference 2019 (NSPC19) in Melbourne from 22-25 July, Everymind is calling on individuals throughout the suicide prevention and mental health sector to take collective action to support The National Communications Charter (The Charter).
More than 10,000 people are expected to tune in to the 2019 Suicide Prevention Summit tomorrow, which is one of Australia’s largest online suicide prevention conferences.
Everymind Director, Jaelea Skehan will be among more than 15 mental health and suicide prevention sector leaders’, practitioners, researchers, authors and educators who will be presenting online via the Summit.
The findings from a new survey for Family Day Care educators which was launched by Everymind today will guide the development of an online training program targeting the mental health and wellbeing of children.
Everymind welcomes the Australian Government announcement of $736 million to support and strengthen services for people living with mental ill-health, including $461 million for youth mental health and suicide prevention in the 2019/2020 Federal Budget.
Everymind is pleased to announce launch of the evidence-informed Mindframe for Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) guidelines. Commissioned by the Australian Government Department of Health the project aims to positively influence the quality of media reporting on AOD-related issues, improve community attitudes towards people living with issues related to AOD use and increase help-seeking behaviour.
