Every day, an average of eight Australians take their own life; it's a national crisis that demands attention.
Next Monday marks World Suicide Prevention Day, and you’re invited to take part in remembering those loved ones lost to suicide with a World Suicide Prevention Day Walk this Sunday 9th September.
Come together to support the cause with music, sausage sizzles and coffee from 10am at Bluewater Quary River Street, Mackay.
Special guests will include Mackay Mayor Greg Williams and Julie-anne Gilbert. There will also be information available from support and service organisations to promote the prevention of suicide.
Catch up below for more information on the event, and how else you can take part in World Suicide Prevention Day.
