About the campaign
The ‘You can’t undo violence’ campaign launched across digital channels on 28 September 2015. It also appeared in cinemas and high foot-traffic areas for young people.
The campaign is for young people, and the message is clear: If you hurt someone, you cross the line. And if you cross the line, it can’t be undone. Everyone will know what you did. You can't undo it.
There is no excuse for violence, and there are lasting consequences if you hurt someone. However, if you have crossed the line, there is support available so you can choose to not do it again.

Approximately 2,160 men committed suicide in 2014 alone. These men were people's sons, brothers, fathers, lovers, friends, cousins and colleagues. The problem most men face is that due to the bullshit outdated ideals of masculinity, we feel we need to suck it up and remain stoic when things aren't going so well. If we want a society where we genuinely treat everyone equally, we need to understand how rigid gender stereotypes limit our full potential as men or women. For all of us here at The Line, we’re here to tell you that it’s OK to talk, you don’t have to be tough all the time and it is NOT weak to speak about your feelings. Let ALL your mates know you’re here for them WHENEVER they need. ***Post this as your status*** I'm here to join in saying that #ITSOKAYTOTALK and certainly #ITAINTWEAKTOSPEAK. If you ever need somebody to have a chat with about what's going on in your head/life, please let me know, I promise to never turn down a coffee/beer to go over things. Heck even if you don't want to open up and just want some company - if I can make the smallest difference in your life I would see it as a privilege, not an obligation. Let's show everyone across Australia and the world that #Itsokaynottobeokay, take a selfie, tag 5 friends and let's get the message out that it's okay to talk. Hopefully together we can bring these numbers down! Learn more here http://www.theline.org.au/gender-101 or get help here: http://www.theline.org.au/get-help Peace. The Line.
