The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs helps to monitor a set of Sustainable Develop goals (SDG’s). Goal 3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages, is in line with Mind Blank’s aim to reduce this risk of suicide through interactive theatre in schools and communities.
Youth mental health in Australia costs $6.29 billion annually in lost productivity . National industry leaders such as ReachOut.com and the Black Dog Institute are now confirming value in awareness raising preventative strategies in schools. Mind Blank program evaluations confirm reductions in stigma and increased intentions to seeking help for one’s mental and emotional help.
Mind Blank’s mission is supportive of SDG 3.4 By 2030, reduce by one third premature mortality from non-communicable diseases through prevention and treatment and promote mental health and well-being. We are members of Suicide Prevention Australia and a collaborative of health providers striving to Zero Suicide goal which uses a system-wide framework as an organisational commitment to safer suicide care in health care systems.
Mind Blank business values are in line with priorities such as better awareness, prevention and early intervention in relation to suicide prevention. The Australian Government’s Suicide Prevention Plans to supports the use of ‘expert providers’ and ‘evidence based workshops’ aimed to reduce risk factors and increase protective factors to support youths.
Mental Health Problems Are Common
Millions of people are battling mental health issues every day. There are a lot of misconceptions about mental health, which is why so many stigmas exist. Lack of knowledge about a situation or experience does not help a situation, which is why it is best to keep an open mind and educate yourself on how you can help.
Did you know:
– You can still have mental health issues without it being a mental illness.
– People with mental health problems can still be productive in the community.
– Just because someone has a mental health illness is does not necessarily mean they are a violent person.
