Who we are

ALIVE is a community-driven organisation of people and partners committed to ending youth suicide. ALIVE is inspiring and supporting young Australians at risk of suicide to feel Alive and ultimately choose life through the engagement of our suicide intervention support programs and initiatives.

OUR VISION is to end youth suicide. We are experiencing a frightening epidemic of suicides in Australia, and our aim is to provide education, and intervention where suicide is a risk and prevent it.  We are on a Journey to Zero suicide – join us now.

OUR PURPOSE is to work collaboratively as a community providing education to aid with suicide prevention and directly support those young people identified at risk of suicide. Helping them thrive and be fully ALIVE.

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 also provide emergency intervention kits to those waiting to access already heavily burdened systems.

PARTNERSHIPS

Movember has worked with ALIVE to adapt the Ahead of The Game Face to Face program into a new Covid-safe online format, delivering it locally in Australia in partnership with the Queensland Rugby League to age group grassroots rugby league clubs including teams in the Auswide Mal Meninga Cup.  

Ahead of the Game helps to equip adolescent boys to deal with Mental Health Challenges through sports based mental fitness and resilience training that teaches athletes, parents and coaches how to spot the signs of poor mental health and how and when to get help.

Get Real Institute provides the Online Mental Health and Resilience content for coaches and teachers.  Get Real Institute gives young people practical skills for a resilient mindset and addresses anxiety, depression, how to deal with traumas and how to navigate through peak emotional states.

Get Real Institute’s 12 month online program is delivered in a self-paced curriculum over 10 courses (Life Hacks) through engaging videos and activities.

What we offer

ALIVE SUICIDE PREVENTION PACKS

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.

EVENTS AND CAMPAIGNS

Advertising and events that reach out to those young people at risk of suicide and encourage them to access support, and inspire them to choose life.

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.
