World Suicide Prevention Day, Thursday 10 September 10am at the Alice Springs Civic Centre Lawns.

The Mental Health Association of Central Australia, with support from the Alice Springs Town Council, are holding a public event to raise awareness of the severity of the problem of suicide, one of the world’s largest public health problems.

This occasion is an opportunity to come together as a community to remember all those who have died by suicide, those who struggle with this issue in their daily lives, and all those people who have been bereaved by suicide.

The event will include music, speakers, a smoking ceremony, laying of flowers and an opportunity for silent remembering. Light refreshments will be provided.

There will also be stalls, displays and information about suicide prevention awareness and the support and services available in Central Australia for those touched by suicide.

Please join us in helping to reduce the stigma, taboo and silence that is often associated with the issue of suicide.

For more information please contact Sarah Ford, Community Engagement Officer, on 8950 4600.
