Around eight Australians take their own life every day. It’s a national crisis that needs more attention, and on Tuesday 11th September, following World Suicide Prevention Day, you can do just that at a free community event in Broadbeach.
The event is an opportunity to educate yourself on how you can recognise the signs and help your loved ones who might be struggling with mental health. There will be keynote speakers as well as services information and stalls, to help you understand what local support is available.
Suicide Prevention Australia CEO Nieves Murray said that World Suicide Prevention Day is an opportunity "to honour loved ones who've died by suicide. To understand that we all have a role in preventing suicide. To start and continue conversations that matter".
We invite you to start that conversation with us.
The event will run from 9:30am – 2:30pm at Albert Waterways Community Centre.
