Full Presenter Profile & Bio

Through experiencing a tragedy, Mitch McPherson has since established a successful suicide prevention charity. In 2013, Mitch’s younger brother took his own life, sparking Mitch to act and help those around him so they didn’t have to experience what he did. 

The Speak Up! Stay ChatTy charity honours Mitch’s brother Ty, spreading the message that it is okay to not be okay. Starting with bumper stickers, the charity has now raised over $270,000 through events, golf days, and gala balls.

Mitch has spoken to over 300 school groups, workplaces, and sporting clubs, helping others to open up and get help. 

He now works full-time as a youth suicide prevention project officer with Relationships Australia Tasmania, with their new Schools program “#TeamChatTY” helping students to build resilience and understand how to access help when going through a difficult time.
