The Alliance strives to create a connected community to improve mental health and resiliency to suicidality and its precursors for the Sunshine Coast.
The Alliance actively promotes opportunities for our members to
- Raise awareness of suicide and depression to reduce stigma and promote help seeking behaviour
- Participate in mental health capacity building programs
- Promote a collaborative voice on issues of critical importance to our region
There’s always more that we can do to help our staff and volunteers in this space. Training, education and awareness; its a whole community approach that we need to take.Feda Adra
I encourage people to talk and open up, friends, family are willing to listen. The more people on board for the Alliance the better. It’s essential that everyone works together as a community.Leon Stensholm
All of the work by the Alliance is underpinned by contemporary research. How do we then build our programs so that we are actually building a really healthy Sunshine Coast community.Maria Woods
