Men's Lived Experience of Suicide Network August 2023

The National Men’s Lived Experience of Suicide Network builds on work from the Roses in the Ocean Lived Experience of Suicide Summit of 2021. The Australian Men’s Health Forum (AMHF) was invited to co-chair a session with Roses in the Ocean specifically focusing on male suicide.  At that LE Summit, the Network was established as one small way in which we can do our bit to address the concerning fact that 75% of suicides in Australia are by males.

The National Men’s Lived Experience of Suicide Network (NMLESN) is primarily an online forum, meeting bi-monthly. We may occasionally meet at conferences or other events where there is likely to be representation. The Network will provide connection, learning, and opportunities to contribute to suicide prevention policy and program development.

The August 30 event will run from 6pm-7.30pm AEST via zoom. 

This month's guest speaker, Nikki Titmus.

​​​​​​​Nikki is a force to be reckoned with, who has harnessed her creativity, sensitivity, and lived experiences to make a lasting impact on the lives of others. Her journey has taken her through diverse fields, including mental health, forensic and corrections, consultancy, and advocacy. Passionate about empowering men and women, Nikki has carved a niche in supporting men with a focus that is both rare and vital. From one-on-one engagements to shaping systemic reform, she has left no stone unturned in her quest to bring about meaningful change.

In her work, Nikki goes beyond the realms of research articles, aiming for genuine cultural and social transformation. A true advocate, she fearlessly challenges oppressive and stigmatized narratives, dismantling barriers in services, systems, and perceptions. Known for her tenacity and her unwavering dedication to driving positive change.
