Tasmanian LIFE Awards 2016

Red Herring Surf Communities in Action for Suicide Prevention Award

Every year Red Herring surf sponsors the Tasmanian Suicde Perevention Communities in Action Award.
This year the deserving winner was 'Speak Up Stay ChatTy' Well done to Mitch and his team.


After the tragic death by suicide of his younger brother Ty in 2013, Mitch McPherson, a glazier by trade, along with members of his family and close friends, turned this devastating loss into the successful suicide prevention charity SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY.  Stay ChatTY’s dedicated approach to suicide prevention and awareness has seen the charity affect the lives of many families bereaved by suicide. 

Through partnering with key community groups, businesses and sporting identities SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY has over 15,000 likes on social media which is an incredible achievement for a small charity, with support continuing to grow daily.  Since 2013, SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY has spoken to 150 school groups, workplaces and sporting clubs and is committed to spreading the message that there is nothing so bad that it cannot be talked about.  The charity has also raised significant funds thanks to overwhelming public support due to the high profile that it has developed.

In 2015 the inaugural SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY ball attracted approximately 600 guests in its first year – which is unprecedented.  SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY has also provided support for a number of community members who have worked tirelessly to raise funds for the charity over the past three years.  The charity has also raised awareness of suicide prevention throughout the community with visual reminders of more than 10,000 bumper stickers, over 4,000 wrist bands and more recently, a full clothing range.

In 2014, SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY partnered with Relationships Australia to ensure that the message of SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY continues to grow. The charity has grown to include a dedicated Board of eight from various skill sectors, whose vision is that SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY will become a national charity, with a focus on delivering programs to schools around Australia to increase awareness and remove the stigma associated with mental health problems. 
This award recognises everyone involved in the SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY community and we thank them for their dedication and commitment to preventing suicide in Tasmania.
