Letting Everyone Talk Safely - Introduction to Let'sTALK
Authentic connections are fundamental to our wellness and can start with a simple conversation. In these uncertain times it is important to create an environment where everyone can talk safely about their concerns, and to help cultivate a more connected, caring and collaborative culture.
Jetha Devapura, Founder and CEO of CCC Foundation Australian Inc believes that “a simple conversation can be the difference between an end and a beginning” - and we couldn't agree more. In this webinar, we were joined by Jetha to get this conversation going, and to start to look deeper into the stigma around mental health and how to overcome barriers when reaching out.
During the session, Jetha and Go1’s Social Impact Manager, Cam Cliff, also discussed the Let’sTALK framework and their commitment in creating a sustainable culture of open conversations, as well as:
- What are some common obstacles to a conversation?
- How do we know we’re ready for a conversation like this?
- the World Suicide Prevention Day initiative Let’sTALK and Walk event
We are really excited to have had Jetha join us and hope that together we can continue creating open and positive discussions around mental health.

Let’sTALK is a program designed to help Families, Schools, Universities and Workplaces start reconnecting and rebuilding their village through the power of conversation. Let’sTALK provides a structured approach to open communication to support and empower anyone through their challenges. Challenges do not only have to be mental illness related, but also everyday challenges that can escalate to bigger ones.
Letting everyone talk safely (Let’s) is the aim of the Let’sTALK Program that encourages people to feel safe in talking about their concerns before they escalate.
