The second week of February marks End Youth Suicide Week, a campaign which encourages our community and young people to defy the stigma associated with mental health and to openly talk about suicide with their friends, families and communities.
To support End Youth Suicide Week you can fundraise for the campaign, wear the Youth Insearch pin, post on social media, or donate so young people can access our life saving program.
Share our message on your social media account. We have shared downloadable resources below to create your own posts and raise awareness to reverse these devastating statistics.
Join the conversation by raising awareness on youth suicide as the leading cause of death amongst youth in Australia. If you are sharing sensitive or possibly triggering content, please remember to use a content or trigger warning on social media posts and stories.

“As a leader for two years, I feel like I’ve changed so many peoples lives and so many people look up to me.”
The Youth Insearch Program has proven success for 37 years. In 2019, 91% of participants who felt suicidal prior to the program no longer felt this way after attending the program. After attending our programs, we saw an 89% reduction in suicide attempts from young people who had attempted previously.
This year, the national End Youth Suicide initiative encourages all of us, particularly young people, to defy stigma by openly talking about suicide with friends, families, and communities. Help us to normalise the conversation and support our young people to move from trauma to triumph.
