I want to increase my awareness, get involved and decrease Male suicide in Australia

Three million Australians are currently experiencing anxiety or depression.1

Every day, nearly eight people take their own lives.2

Because this affects all of us, we’re equipping everyone in Australia with the knowledge and skills to protect their own mental health. We’re giving people the confidence to support those around them, and making anxietydepression and suicide part of everyday conversations.

And as well as tackling stigma, prejudice and discrimination, we’re breaking down the barriers that prevent people from speaking up and reaching out.

We’re here for everyone in Australia – at work, home, schooluniversityonline, and in communities across the country.
