Have you got an idea to promote wellbeing in your community?
SPCC can provide your organisation with a grant to support your RU OK? event.

What is LifeSpan and SPCC?
LifeSpan is a new, evidence-based, community-led approach to suicide prevention. It involves the simultaneous implementation of nine strategies proven to reduce suicide. LifeSpan aims to build a safety net for the community by connecting and coordinating new and existing interventions and programs, and building the capacity of the community to better support people facing a suicide crisis.
Suicide Prevention Central Coast (SPCC) is an alliance with representation from local services, organisations and community groups. SPCC is responsible for coordinating the local implementation of LifeSpan, led and supported by the Black Dog Institute. This is an exciting opportunity to have a significant and sustainable impact on suicide on the Central Coast.

A number of small grants are being offered to assist the staging of RU OK? Day activities or events on or around RU OK? Day.
