The event includes a Q & A session with local service providers, non- government organisations and groups dedicated to raise awareness of suicide and contribute to a discussion about what some of the challenges are and what some of the solutions might be to help reduce suicide in our community.  

Suicide is the leading cause of death in Australia among people aged 15–44.  A total of 3,128 people took their own lives in 2017(ABS), and over 65000 attempt suicide per annum, which translates to more than 180 every day. For each death, about 135 people are impacted and are themselves eight times at higher risk of suicide, which equates to nearly half a million people each year.
