AFL Tasmania’s charity partner SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY works to help prevent suicide by spreading the message that nothing is so bad that you can’t talk about it. Mitch McPherson established the organisation after his younger brother Ty took his own life in 2013. Mitch wants to encourage others to speak up and seek help when they have problems. Mitch and his team organise community events and fundraisers, speak to groups, workplaces, clubs and schools and help promote the SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY message.

Help spread the message of SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY by:
> Displaying a SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY sticker in a prominent position
> Inviting Mitch to speak to your group, club, workplace or school
> Organising a fund raising event
> Inviting SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY to run a workshop at your school with your Year 9 and 10 students or College students
> Telling others about SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY
> Following SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY on Twitter or Like them on Facebook
