R U OK? ambassadors support Stop Male Suicide in QLD seminar

Two ambassadors from the R U OK? project will be speaking at the Stop Male Suicide in QLD seminar, to be held Brisbane on Friday 3rd June 2016.

R U OK? is a not-for-profit organisation on a mission to help prevent suicide by encouraging and equipping everyone to regularly and meaningful ask”are you ok”?

Two of R U OK?’s ambassadors in QLD,  Justin Geange and Natalie Whale, are supporting the seminar that will bring together people who are committed to taking action to help Stop Male Suicide, which currently takes the lives of six men in Australia every day.

Justin is a community ambassador for R U OK?, a member of Suicide Prevention Australia’s Lived Experience Speakers Bureau and a Community Rehabilitation Support Worker.  A plumber by trade, Justin has experienced bipolar and depression and is committed to starting conversations about mental health and suicide prevention.

You can see Justin sharing his story for Rail R U OK? Day on YouTube.

Natalie Whale’s father took his own life in 1991, shortly before her 17th birthday. In 2014, Natalie decided to honour the death of her father by lending some of her skills to RUOK? and becoming a community ambassador, sharing her personal story to help inspire others. She also volunteers for Lifeline.
