    World Suicide Prevention Day 2015 is Thursday 10 September. It is also RUOK? Day in Australia.

    In 2015, the international theme of World Suicide Prevention Day is Preventing Suicide: Reaching Out and Saving Lives.’

    Suicide Prevention Australia says, "It is speaking up to reduce the stigma around talking about suicide prevention safely. It is about standing up to make a positive impact on our mental health and wellbeing. It is about being self informed and aware of support and services available to all those touched by suicide and those building a resilient community to prevent suicide."

    World Suicide Prevention Day events occur in local communities across Australia. Check out the Events page on the Suicide Pevention Australia website to see what’s happening near you.
