Too many Australian men suicide, so bold new approaches to suicide prevention are required.
Spur Projects produces a wide range of innovative mental health projects that give men the resources, skills and language they need in order action for their mental health.
That are a range of barriers that stop men from taking action for their mental health and our campaigns and initiatives help to break these barriers down.
With 20% of Australians experiencing poor mental health in any given 12 month period2, it’s an issue that affects us all.1 Causes of Death ABS, 2012
We give men the resources to take control of their mental health before the tough-times come.
We have simple, accessible, non-clinical, action-oriented conversations about mental health.
We engage people without them even realising it's for their mental health.
All projects involve active participation, rather than passive observation
Different demographics require different approaches and mediums.
Our projects connect people and harness the power of groups.

This is great! I lost a very close friend to suicide just a few short years ago. I hope these projects reach and change lives. Keep up the great work.
I f*cking love this!!!! I'm going to talk about this with everyone I know.
This saved me 6 months ago. Things haven't really changed since then but my perspective has, and I'm happier now. Thank you.
