SIX PEOPLE commit suicide in Australia every day - a tragic loss of life that underlines the importance of people seeking help when they are feeling desperate. Next Monday, September 10 on World Suicide Prevention Day, a suicide awareness workshop called SuicideTALK is being held in Lismore by Lifeline.
"It's a 90-minute program exploring issues in suicide prevention," counselling centre manager Niall Mulligan said. "Lifeline is committed to reinforcing our community's capacity to recognise and respond to those who may be at risk of suicide. We're calling on people from the community to help spread the word that suicide can be prevented - and that help is available 24/7 through Lifeline."
Niall said the workshop is aimed at making direct and honest talk about suicide easier.
It's on in Room P158 at Southern Cross University on Monday September 10, at 12.30 pm and is free and open to all. Bookings are essential. Call Matt Moriarty on 0411 254 585 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
