Sadly, suicide impacts many thousands of Australian families every year. The government and health sectors have developed programs and resources aimed at reducing suicide particularly amongst young people and there has been some success.

Nevertheless people are still taking their own lives. While no one in the academic community has advanced a good theory explaining why, we believe there’s a strong spiritual and philosophical dimension to this trend. Suicide may be due, at least in part, to the secularisation of modern society. Hopelessness, malaise, and de-sensitisation to the value of life, are part of the fallout of living in a world without purpose, without meaning and without God.

Born Survivors traditionally has been run as in-person training course, but we have now opened it up to everyone in the form of an online micro course. This micro course aims to give an overview and easy to understand principles surrounding suicide prevention and mental health.
