Who are we?

ALIVE

Alive is a community-driven organisation of people and partners committed to end youth suicide. Inspiring and supporting young Australians at risk of suicide to feel alive and ultimately choose life through the engagement of our suicide intervention support services and initiatives.

OUR MISSION is to reduce and ultimately eliminate youth suicide. We are experiencing a frightening epidemic here in Australia, and our aim is to provide education, and intervention where suicide is a risk and prevent it.

OUR PURPOSE is to work collaboratively as a community providing education to aid suicide prevention and support directly to those young people identified at risk of suicide.  Helping them create a life worth living for.

EDUCATE

Teach our community how to start a discussion that can save a life, and providing intervention kits that can be given to young people showing signs of risk.  Suicide first aide program delivery within organisations and our community will save lives.  Ending youth suicide one life at a time.  Delivering 10,000 “Alive kits” into service centres throughout Australia in 2017.

WORKING TOGETHER

Pioneering and partnering for real change – we work as a tribe for community change for each young person to be embraced into thriving adults.  Through collaboration – we achieve more together than we ever could individually

RAISING AWARENESS TO REACH OUT

To drive awareness to the alarming youth suicide crisis we provide a platform that we can reach out.  Through advertising campaigns and speaking engagements and collaboration with our partners and patrons we aim to reach every young Australian and their support network.  Through driving awareness we can link those at risk to the services they need the most.  We will also provide emergency intervention kits to those waiting to access heavily burdened systems.

Our Projects

ALIVE SUICIDE PREVENTION PACKS

Many lives are lost while they sit on waiting lists for exhausted services.  “Alive kits” are suicide prevention kits aimed at proving resources to a young person in crisis and prevent them from taking harmful action.  Getting these kits in the hands of those who need them the most, when they are in crisis, is our commitment.
