National Communications Charter

The National Communications Charter (The Charter) is an evidence-informed resource to guide the way mental health and suicide prevention sectors, government, business and community talk about mental ill-health and suicide.

Signing The Charter serves as a formal commitment to use safe and consistent language when discussing mental ill-health and suicide. It is an agreement to put the eight principles into practice in order to reduce stigma and promote help-seeking.

The Charter is hosted on the Life in Mind digital portal.
