If one of your mates was suicidal, would you know what to do?
Today marks the last day of Movember, a national campaign which aims to raise awareness for men's mental health and suicide prevention.
It's been great to see thousands of men from around Australia getting involved in this important cause. To keep the momentum going, why not sign up for Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) - an online suicide prevention course that takes just one hour.
This evidence-based course will help you gain the skills and confidence to support a mate who might be struggling. An added benefit is that the Collaborative is offering FREE QPR training!
