Community Broadcasting Suicide Prevention Project – June 2024

The Community Broadcasting Association is pleased to welcome you to the June 2024 content of our national suicide prevention and mental health awareness project, developed with the support of the Australian Government Department of Health.

Each month, our project team develops a series of 20 short radio segments designed to promote help-seeking behaviour and positive lifestyle choices, using interviews with service providers, as well as profiles of people who have successfully dealt with tough times in their lives.

This month, we learn about the Embrace Project’s Framework for Mental Health in Multicultural Australia, an online resource which supports mental health services to work effectively in a multicultural context.

We learn about PANDA’s new translated resources which are designed to support and ground new and expecting parents from culturally and linguistically diverse communities.

We catch up with ReachOut to find out why mental health days can be important for young people.

We encourage people to check out Stronger Together, a suicide prevention campaign targeting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

And we learn about the free resources Hey Sport, R U OK? provides for coaches, administrators, officials, volunteers and participants to help everyone in their sporting community feel connected and supported.

Download the segments for your station to promote.
