#YouCanTalk about suicide

#YouCanTalk encourages people to have a conversation with a friend, family member or work colleague they’re concerned about.

While it can be difficult to talk about suicide, research shows you can have a positive influence on someone who may be considering suicide by initiating a conversation with them and supporting them to seek support. You don’t need to be a clinician, a GP, or a nurse to check-in with someone you are worried about. It is OK to let som aus01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com eone know you have noticed they are struggling and ask them if they are experiencing thoughts of suicide.
 
It is normal to feel worried or nervous about having a conversation with a friend, family member or work colleague who might be experiencing suicidal thoughts, but there are resources available to support you.
 
#YouCanTalk is a national collaborative effort that aims to encourage, empower and equip Australians to play a more active role in preventing suicide in their own communities. Find out more about the collaborative campaign here.
