Mitch McPherson

Few people have the drive and dedication of Mitch McPherson. When his younger brother Ty took his own life in 2013, Mitch, a glazier by trade, turned the devastating loss into the successful suicide prevention charity SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY.

Since then, 2017 Tasmanian Young Australian of the Year Mitch McPherson has spoken to over 700 events which include school groups, workplaces, sporting clubs, Community Events and National Conferences all across the country.

Through partnering with key community groups, businesses and sporting identities SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY has over 26,000 likes on its Facebook page, and this support continues to grow daily.

Since 2014 Mitch has partnered with Relationships Australia Tasmania, to ensure that the message of SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY continues to grow. Now with a dynamic and passionate team, programs in schools and sporting clubs across the state continue to educate Tasmanians on the issues surrounding mental health – https://staychatty.com.au/programs/

Mitch is dedicated to spreading the message that nothing is so bad that you can’t talk about it, and his vision is that SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY will become a national charity, with a focus on delivering programs in schools and sporting clubs around Australia to increase awareness and remove the stigma surrounding mental health.

Expand your knowledge and be inspired to action after hearing Mitch’s story of losing his brother to suicide.
