Who are we?


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.



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.


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


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.

What we do

Our Projects


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.

The Shack

‘The Shack’ is our local community spot in Loganholme designated to provide suicide intervention services and counselling to young people at risk of suicide that reach out.  This life affirming space would not be possible without funding from the Queensland Government and our Partners.

We are very proud to recognise the Patrons and Partners with whom we take a stand to end youth suicide. Our partners are at the core of what we do, and keep the wheels turning on our mission being achieved. We thank you for standing with us, and for helping more young Australians feel ALIVE.
