Spur Projects is an evolving idea: We believe that to tackle the rate of suicide amongst men in Australia, bold new approaches to suicide prevention are required.
Suicide remains the leading cause of death for men aged 14 to 44, and 80% of all suicides are men1
We produce innovative mental health campaigns that will reduce the rate of suicide in Australia.
We know that the risk of suicide diminishes drastically when people have help and support. For many men, however, there can be a range of barriers to help-seeking behaviour.
That needs to change, and we exist to change that.
Spur Projects is an all volunteer team. With 20% of Australians experiencing mental health issues in any given 12 month period2, we know that it’s an issue that affects us all.
We believe that there is no such thing as a typical Aussie male.
What we do can, and will, create change.
All men have the capacity to take control of their mental health and seek help when needed.
Being courageous means challenging the status quo, asking the tough questions and starting the important conversations.
We value agility and flexibility. Taking action is more important than dwelling for too long on a single idea.
Empowerment comes from co-creation. We give people the space to work with us to reconstruct their experiences.
We believe in staying authentic to the message and cause. We stay true to our words.
We maintain our innovation by remaining fresh, optimistic, disruptive & dynamic.
