Suicide has a devastating impact on families, friends and whole communities. The statistics can be confronting; we must remember that behind every number is a human life lost and continue in our determination to achieve an Australia free of suicide.
It is important that all public messages are safe and life affirming and do not sensationalise suicide. Here you'll find resources for the safe communication and reporting of suicide and mental health as well as media contacts at Lifeline.
Lifeline reports and external documents of interest relating to crisis support, suicide prevention and mental health. Publications include relevant social policy submissions and reports, caller profile reports, and research reports.
