Double the Plus – SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY

Published on
12 March 2021

Mitch McPherson founded SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY in 2013 after losing his younger brother Ty to suicide. 

What started out as a small idea in creating a car sticker in honour of Ty, and the message that it is so important we speak up when we are going through a tough time, has grown into Mitch sharing his lived experience story. Mitch has shared his story across Tasmania (and nationally) more than 700 times. 

Now with a dedicated and passionate team of 9, Stay ChatTY works with schools, sporting clubs, workplaces, and community groups right across the state delivering the program and presentations. 

A donation to SPEAK UP! Stay ChatTY is a donation toward normalising conversations about mental health.
