Spur Projects is an evolving idea: We believe that to tackle the rate of suicide amongst men, bold new approaches to suicide prevention are required.
Suicide remains the leading cause of death around the world. In Australia alone suicide is the biggest killer of men aged 14 to 44. 80% of all Australian suicides are men.
We know that the risk of suicide diminishes drastically with help and support. For many men, however, seeking help and support is not always an easy thing to do. Spur is here to change this, by challenging men to start the conversation, both metaphorically and literally.
