MRSPAG Speakers’ Bureau provides organisations with a professionally trained Speaker who will motivate and inspire audiences to actively support suicide prevention.

MRSPAG Speakers’ Bureau have a ‘lived experience of suicide’.

A lived experience of suicide is defined by Suicide Prevention Australia as having: experienced suicidal thoughts, survived a suicide attempt, cared for someone who has attempted suicide, been bereaved by suicide or been touched by suicide in another way.

Our Speakers help to:

  • Improve the community’s understanding of suicide

  • Correct myths and stereotypes about suicide

  • Reduce fear, shame and stigma associated with suicide

  • Encourage people to seek support if they are experiencing suicidal thoughts or if they are concerned about someone

Our Speakers share their story using evidence-based safe messaging to reduce the likelihood of causing distress to audience members.
