NSPT Campaign 

Talking Heals Campaign

The Trial involves various community activities made possible by funding from Brisbane North PHN and Brisbane South PHN.

Talking Heals.

Increasing rates of suicide and self-harm in our LGBTIQ+, Sistergirl and Brotherboy communities challenged us to think about new ways to have useful conversations. This video aims to encourage healing conversations.

 

This campaign has been developed in response to the increased rates of suicide and self harm amongst LGBTIQ+, Sistergirl and Brotherboy people. The campaign has been developed with LGBTIQ+ people with lived experience of suicide, with the aim generating community conversations and creating pathways to knowledgeable and inclusive support for LGBTIQ+, Sistergirl and Brotherboy people at risk of suicide. As one part of the campaign, this video aims to encourage healing conversations.

CAMPAIGN ART COMMISSION PROCESS 

The design for this campaign began with an artistic exploration of how creativity can encourage conversations which aim to reduce suicide and self-harm in our LGBTIQ+, Sistergirl and Brotherboy communities. As part of the National Suicide Prevention Trial being held in the greater Brisbane region, the Queensland AIDS Council invited artists to submit a visual art response to the messages: “Talking can make it better” and “Here’s how to start the conversation.” The following artworks are the response.

The Talking Heals campaign also features the artwork "Woven Together", which was developed for the Yarns Heal - Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, LGBTIQ+, BrotherBoy and Sistergirl Suicide Prevention Campaign in collaboration with Indigilez, gar'band'jee'lum and the Community working group.
