Help us reduce alarming incidence of men’s suicide


9th January 2020

Did you know six out of the eight suicides per day in Australia are men? Or that male suicide increased by 41 per cent in the decade between 2006 and 2015?

We want to see these rates drop significantly and to that end will be developing and funding a range of new men’s suicide prevention initiatives over the coming years with input from our community.

We’ll be hosting co-design sessions – at Rydges Campbelltown on Monday, 3 February and Mittagong RSL on Tuesday, 4 February – and are inviting those who are passionate about helping men become more proactive in reducing their risk of suicide to come along and have their say.

The free co-design event is for:
- community members/ consumers
- carers
- GPs
- mental health professionals
- community organisation representatives

The sessions will provide participants with the opportunity to see presentations from services which are already working to prevent men’s suicide and to help design the types of approaches they’d like to see in our region.

Register for the Rydges Campbelltown session - Monday, 3 February.

Register for the Mittagong RSL session - Tuesday,  4 February
