SEMPHN signs National Communications Charter
Tuesday, 10 September 2019
For World Suicide Prevention Day, SEMPHN as an organisation signed the National Communications Charter.
The charter, developed by Life in Mind, provides an opportunity for SEMPHN to play a role in reducing stigma around mental illness and suicide, while also promoting help-seeking behaviour through its guiding principles and messages.
Mental health is considered a key priority for SEMPHN. We commission local programs and services for people affected by mental health and who are at risk of suicide.
By signing the charter, we agree to communicate in ways that are safe and actively work to increase help-seeking behaviour, reduce stigma, and encourage collaboration.
