JESS CHOOSES LIFE

JESS CHOOSES LIFE
“In 2018 there were 3,046 deaths by suicide, and 458 of these were young people under 25 years of age. In the face of this national tragedy, both the Federal Government and the Victorian Government have made mental health and suicide prevention top priorities. Community, family and friends are fundamentally important when it comes to suicide prevention. With this in mind, Mental Health Victoria – the peak body for mental health organisations – is very pleased to commend the collaboration of Health Play, Parent Guides and PoPsy to produce Jess Chooses Life, a sensitive and thought provoking play that examines the pressures faced by young people and how parents can broach challenging topics such as mental health and suicide. The format of the production – which includes audience discussion supported by mental health professionals – is highly engaging and thought provoking, while being sensitive and supportive to audience members who may have lived experience.”
