White Wreath Association would not be able to continue without the support of it members and the general public in their generous financial contributions.

In spite of the tough economic conditions during the past year, your support has been unstinting.

We are more than grateful for your commitment and valued financial assistance as we edge closer to the aims, goals and endeavours of White Wreath.

The ultimate goal of the Association is the building of Safehavens, fully-staffed mental health facilities with ongoing programs and assessments to treat patients and assist families and carers.

As we work towards that objective, we continue to provide advocacy and support to the sufferers of mental illness and their families.

In raising awareness of the social impact mental health has on our society we are hopefully educating the public and reducing the stigma associated with mental health.

I would like to extend my sincere gratitude and appreciation to everyone who has been involved during the year in our fund-raising activities: White Wreath Day – In Remembrance of All Victims of Suicide – and Wear White at Work for those who could not attend the Service (both on  29 May); and Sock It to Suicide during the third full week in October.

Hopefully you and your friends and colleagues enjoyed yourselves and had fun with involvement in these two workplace activities.

Together we will make a difference.

I would like to thank everyone who has helped us during the year and wish all a Merry Christmas, a Happy and Prosperous New Year, and continued good health.
