Shoalhaven Suicide Prevention and Awareness Network

The Shoalhaven Suicide Prevention and Awareness Network (SSPAN) is a network of representatives from the Shoalhaven community, government and non-government organisations. We work closely with the community to raise awareness of suicide, promote recovery from mental illness and build individual and community resilience. Our aim is to reduce the impact of suicide in the Shoalhaven.

The Blue Card is a simple tool to assist in removing some of the difficulty in asking someone for help.

The young person in need is aware of what support they are asking for – because it is clearly written on the back of the card. Asking for help can be the first step to recovery and future resilience.
