Suicide is a prominent community concern in Australia with the ABS reporting 3,128 deaths by suicide in 2017. Globally, suicide is responsible for over 800,000 deaths.
We have a responsibility – as individuals and as a society – to collectively shine a light on suicide prevention. Even one life lost to suicide is one too many.
At Holyoake, we also offer a range of suicide prevention services via our Wheatbelt Community Alcohol & Drug Service (WCADS) thanks to funding from the WA Mental Health Commission, and WA Primary Health Alliance (WAPHA).
