Suicide is a real and often hidden problem. Unfortunately over 2,300 people lose their lives to suicide every year, and another 65,000 feel so desperate they attempt to take their own lives. But suicide is preventable in the majority of instances.
Suicide Prevention Australia is working to create an Australia community that knows how to give help and how to get help. Join us in helping make suicide prevention everybody’s business. To learn more about Suicide Prevention Australia visit us at www.suicidepreventionaust.org.
Funds from the 2013 NLM Comedy Gala will go towards supporting Suicide Prevention Australia lead the National Coalition for Suicide Prevention. The coalition is a group of over 25 leading Australian mental health and suicide prevention organisations, including beyondblue, Lifeline, RUOK? Day and the Black Dog Institute. The coalition aim is to halve suicides in the next decade, and NLM is vital to help raise the funds we need to ensure this impact.
