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.
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.

“Suicide doesn’t end the chances of life getting worse, it eliminates the possibility of it ever getting any better.”Joshua Morgan - Company, Inc.
“Anyone desperate enough for suicide should be desperate enough to go to creative extremes to solve problems: elope at midnight, stow away on the boat to New Zealand and start over, do what they always wanted to do but were afraid to try.” Richard BachLindsay Gilbert - That Cool Company
“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” – Harriet Beecher StoweRussell Harmon - Company INC.
