Thank you to all for the overwhelming participation in our new campaign “Wear White At Work” to coincide with White Wreath Day – In Remembrance of All Victims of Suicide held on the 29 May Yearly. This was specifically introduced for those that can’t attend a Service but still wish to be part of the day.
By participating you are helping towards building a stronger united voice in Action Against Suicide Australia wide. Drawing attention to the fact that all other life threatening conditions e.g. heart attack, stroke, cancer, diabetes etc. receive immediate admission into hospital and immediate treatment with follow-up service. Attempted suicide/mental illness does not receive immediate or, indeed often, any admission into hospital. White Wreath’s main objective is to raise funds in order to build Safehaven Centres for those when suicide threatens. A place of safety.
We advocate changes that we know will benefit people affected by suicide/mental illness. We advocate early intervention e.g. rapid admission into hospital when individuals and loved ones detect a change that indicates a person is at risk.
Suicide affects all walks of life, all cultures and all ages, regardless of whether people are rich, famous or poor.
Thank you for your continued support in helping us make all aware of the alarming increase of suicide/mental illness in our country and the need for Action Against Suicide to be implemented.
Please don’t forget our Sock It To Suicide Campaign held during the third full week in October Yearly. For a gold coin donation organise workplaces etc to wear their brightest coloured pair of Socks/Stocking to work, school etc and together lets have fun and Sock It To Suicide!
