Sit, Talk and Yarn—or STaY—is an innovative suicide prevention initiative in Cherbourg, implemented under the Darling Downs Indigenous Health Unit. Dovetailing best practice suicide intervention with a whole of community approach, the service is drastically improving support provided to consumers identified as lower risk in the clinical setting.

Through embedding non-clinical interventions, connecting support networks and embedding social and emotional wellbeing principles in the standard model of care, the project is destigmatising suicide and improving outcomes for the community.
