SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY is a registered not for profit charity that works to help prevent suicide by spreading the message that nothing is so bad that you can’t talk about it.
Mitch McPherson established the organisation after his younger brother Ty took his own life in 2013. Mitch wants to encourage others to speak up and seek help when they have problems. Mitch is a member of the Suicide Prevention Australia Lived Experience group, and the Tasmanian Suicide Prevention Community Network.
Since its beginnings in 2013, SPEAK UP! Stay chatTY continues to grow in its reach and participation by spreading the importance of seeking help and helping others when we go through tough times.
