Suicide prevention... Conversations Matter

MHiMA Team - Monday, November 18, 2013

A new online community resource to guide safe and supportive conversations about suicide has just been released by the Hunter Institute of Mental Health. 

"In our community we all have a role to play in understanding, preventing and responding to suicide, and in supporting those directly affected by suicide,"  Mr John Feneley, the NSW Mental Health Commissioner, said at the recent launch of the resource. "With access to the practical information in Conversations Matter, people in the community can be empowered to talk about suicide in ways that break down stigma, increase understanding and support those thinking about suicide or affected by suicide."

This suite of online resources has been developed for all community members including individuals, families, schools, workplaces and local communities. They are available on the Conversations Matter website in three different formats: online presentation, fact sheets and audio podcast.
