The National Communications Charter (The Charter) is a unified approach to mental health and suicide prevention supports coordinated and consistent messaging around mental health and suicide prevention.
What is The Charter?
The Charter is a document designed to guide the way organisations talk about mental health and suicide prevention, with each other and with the community.
It serves as a formal commitment to working together and developing better structures and processes for collaboration.
How do we use The Charter?
The Charter sets out broad and strategic communication principles and key messages about mental health and wellbeing, social and emotional wellbeing, mental ill-health and suicide prevention.
By working together under the guidance of the Charter, we can maximise our efforts and resources to help prevent mental illness and suicide and minimise the personal, social and economic effects these have on people, families, communities and organisations.
