The official Suicide Prevention Australia AudioBoom Channel.

Suicide Prevention Australia provides national leadership for the suicide prevention sector in Australia. SPA works collaboratively to develop a community that knows how to ask for help and how to give help.

We build and facilitate partnerships to change behaviours around mental illness and suicide, and to assist the healing for people with lived experience of suicide.

If any of the stories shared on this page bring up touch emotions for you, please reach out to a trusted family member or friend, or one of the support services we have available in Australia (visit our website and click on the Get Help button for more information).
