Programs

Suicide Prevention Pathways (SPP) delivers services and programs to raise awareness of suicide in our communities through individualised coaching, mentoring, training and education.  SPP specialises in providing care and support to those at risk of suicide aged 15 years and over and their support networks.

Talk Suicide Support Service

The TALK SUICIDE Support Service provides care and support to individuals 15 years and over, their families and friends and their support networks.

The TALK SUICIDE Support Service provides Outreach support through the Brisbane region and surrounds and extends its reach to other regions through telephone and web based support options.

Safety

We aim to promote safety by developing individuals awareness and skills to manage their suicidiality by tapping into their existing skills and resources to do so.

We use a true collaborative model of care in building support networks  to keep an individual connected and safe.

Support

Our strengths based, person centred support ranges from brief intervention through to ongoing emotional support as long as is necessary for skills to develop and hope increase. We believe that the key ingredient to suicide prevention is awareness, connectedness, and purpose and work toward these with individuals

Empower

We strive to help individuals realise their own potential and the strength that already exisits within to overcome lifes challenges. We work collaboratively with and support families, friends, and other supports to build awareness, understanding, safety and connectedness both now and in the future.

Youth Talk

In May 2016, SPP was successful in receiving a grant from the Amanda Flynn Foundation to further increase its current level of youth engagement and support through direct targeting of youth services in and around Brisbane.

The goal of this project is to help build a stable support network to meet the practical and emotional needs of the individuals and work toward building resilience and hope for a bright future.

Engage

YTSP works to engage and collaborate with youth through schools, youth groups, community activities and through initiatives such as our Youth Advisory Group who help us to understand the challenges faced by youth today.

Support

SPP TALK SUICIDE Support Service provides practical and emotional support to those 15 years and over at risk of suicide. Our focus with youth is on positive role modelling while helping them build skills and strategies to navigate life’s challenges.

Inform

We seek to increase the capacity and confidence of families,friends and those in support roles to recognise the signs of a person at risk of suicide and what they can do to help.

Education

SPP TALK SUICIDE seeks to empower communities through education, increase understanding of the prevalence and devastating effects of suicide in our society, and create communities that are equipped to help reduce the number of lives lost to suicide.
