About the Charter
Tasmania is the first state to adopt the new National Communications Charter.
The Tasmanian Communications Charter provides a state-based context to the National Communications Charter with emphasis on implementing the principles and key messages of the National Charter at an individual, community and systemic level within Tasmania.
The Tasmanian Communications Charter brings together the mental health and suicide prevention sectors along with government and community leaders to promote a shared understanding and common language around mental health and suicide prevention.
By working together with a common language, we can take steps to reduce stigma and increase help-seeking behaviour within our community.
The Tasmanian Communications Charter has been adapted from the National Communications Charter in partnership with the Mental Health Council Tasmania and Everymind. And has been reviewed and supported by the Tasmanian Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Communications Charter working party.
The Tasmanian Communication Charter is supported by the Tasmanian Government.
The Tasmanian Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Communications Charter is led by the Mental Health Council of Tasmania (MHCT). For further information on the Charter please contact MHCT.
