The Tasmanian Communications Charter

Join the Mental Health Council of Tasmania along with Relationships Australia – Tasmania, headspace and Lifeline Tasmania in speaking together for mental health and suicide prevention.

The Tasmanian Communications Charter: A State-based approach to mental health and suicide prevention brings the community sector together with government and people with lived experience to promote a common language around mental health, mental illness and suicide in Tasmania – so that together we can work to reduce stigma and promote help-seeking behaviour.

Tasmania is the first state to adopt the new National Communications Charter developed in partnership with Everymind and supported by the Tasmanian Government . The development and implementation of the Tasmanian Communications Charter forms part of the Tasmanian Suicide Prevention Strategy 2016-2020.
