Once again Baylin's Gift will be running this years World Suicide Prevention Day on Sunday 10th September from 10am til 1pm.
This year we aim to acknowledge and remember those we have lost to suicide, those who have attempted suicide and also those who are suicidal. This event is also for those wishing to simply raise awareness and provide support on such an important topic.
We will be holding a free BBQ, lighting LED candles for those we've lost to suicide, holding a short walk of remembrance, having some amazing guest speakers, including Adam Williams the recently awarded Best Photographer of NSW.
We are also very lucky this year to have some local organisations join us with resources that promote locally accessible programs. This includes Lifeline, Key Employment, Ability Links and Standby Suicide Response. We are grateful to these organisations for promoting awareness and encouraging support within our community. Well done.
We encourage anyone wanting to support others around suicide and mental illness to come along on the day. You're most welcome.
