Discussing Suicide with Jon Tyler and Paul McNamara
R U OK? Day has been encouraging us to have important conversations with colleagues, friends and family for many years now. This year they are urging us to consider what more there is to say after RUOK?
In line with this we are launching our new page and podcast on suicide. Where we broadly look at the topic including signs to look for and what to do if you are concerned that you, or someone close to you, is feeling suicidal, or showing signs of suicidality. Plus how to talk about it – a conversation can change a life.

Resilience - Your health matters with Kim Foster
I’ve been thinking a lot about this topic lately. Particularly as nurses and midwives are often called upon to be resilient. The COVID-19 pandemic and bushfires have challenged us in so many ways and you might not feel like you have much left in the tank.
Resilience is a complex dynamic concept, consisting of many factors. To enhance our understanding I recorded a podcast with Professor Kim Foster. Kim is an internationally recognised mental health nurse academic, researcher and educator widely published in resilience, mental health and psychosocial health research.
