Can we talk … about mental illness and suicide? A snapshot of public opinion gathered from the conversations of everyday Australians.

Well worth a read.! This snapshot contains great insights from participants; what works in relation to keeping healthy both mentally and physically as well as how sharing stories not only evokes (calling up a memory from the past) but invokes (call upon something) stories and potentially aides in help seeking behaviours.
Research findings highlight community attitudes to mental health. This qualitative sampling of community opinion in relation to mental illness and suicide.

“The study’s findings will be used to inform the Commission’s public communications with Australians, including its first-ever report card on mental illness and suicide to be published later this year. The goal is to ensure that the Commission’s communications resonate with people both inside and outside of the mental health system.”
