Being a Lifeline South Coast Ambassador is an important role in our South Coast community. Lifeline South Coast Ambassadors will be passionate about suicide prevention and supporting mental health and will undertake community engagement activities and participate in Lifeline South Coast events and initiatives. This will help us to raise awareness of our services and encourages open and responsible discussion about mental health and suicide.
Ambassadors play a critical role in de-stigmatising suicide and mental health issues in the community, and they assist in showing that mental illness and suicidal thoughts don’t discriminate between social status, age, race, gender or any other demographic. Anyone can be affected, at any stage of life.
Stigma is still one of the main barriers for people seeking or accepting help for a mental illness or suicidal thoughts.
Our Ambassadors will help us spread our message of building a more resilient suicide-free community.
To express your interest in becoming an ambassador please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your resume.
Every dollar raised helps us to recruit, train, and support more Crisis Supporters to respond to more people and provide vital suicide prevention services to the Illawarra and South Coast.
