Orygen / The Brain & Mind Centre

This Centre for Research Excellence (YOUTHe) is led by the Brain and Mind Centre, partnering with Orygen and the Australian College of Emergency Medicine to build a new phase in youth national health service-level research to reduce suicidal thoughts and behaviour in young people engaged with clinical care.

YOUTHe is unique in that it focuses specifically on healthcare system reform through the implementation of regionally-based participatory design and dynamic modelling and evaluation. This approach will also catalyse the deployment of novel technologies for assessment, intervention and tracking; and, multidisciplinary workforce training.

YOUTHe has a strong focus on capacity building and over the 5-year funding period will be supporting a number of PhD scholars and post-docs to help build the next generation of suicide prevention researchers.

Standby Support After Suicide

Standby Support After Suicide

Established in 2002 to meet the need for a coordinated community response to suicide, StandBy is now recognised as Australia’s leading suicide postvention program, dedicated to assisting people & communities bereaved or impacted by suicide.

In Australia, more than 3,300 people take their own life each year. Research indicates that for every death through suicide 135 people are impacted and ten or more are significantly impacted. StandBy provides free face-to face or telephone support by local caring staff, committed to the wellbeing of the person or group impacted.

Marcus Mission

Marcus Mission aims to reduce the risk of suicide for men in Queensland. The initiative was established by Wesley Mission Queensland in 2018, after being approached by, and with support from, family and community who lost a man to suicide.

To achieve a reduction in the number of young men attempting to take their life or dying by suicide, Wesley Mission Queensland and those involved in Marcus Mission offer support to build the skills, knowledge, and connections of men as well as their families, friends, and communities. They do this in three ways:
  • Volunteer MENtor networks
  • Resilience building workshops
  • Suicide prevention training
