Dads in Distress is the front line suicide prevention support service of charity Parents Beyond Breakup.
We do one thing and we do it really well. More efficiently and more effectively than almost anyone else.
We keep dads alive, and in their kids lives.
Separated men, particularly non custodial dads, make up the single largest group of all male suicides in Australia. Each year, our internal research shows we typically prevent over 365 suicides. Thats somewhere over 650 kids who get to keep their dad, each year.
Its an achievement that is unique and more to the point, we deliver it on a fraction of the funding that larger organisations attract and require. How do we do it?
Almost everyone at Dads in Distress is both a separated dad and a volunteer. Its (trained!) dads helping dads. In 20 years of operating its meant that we’ve never forgotten who we are and why we’re here. All our people have direct lived experience meaning that we are kept honest, focussed and effective. Its why no large charity comes close to matching our suicide prevention performance, or our cost efficiency.
If you’re going to support anyone that is working to reduce male suicide, why not make it an organisation thats more than proven it delivers far more for far less. Please give generously. With us you know its going straight to the front line and into hands on, grass root, suicide prevention – saving a dads life, and helping give his kids a brighter future.
