Turn out in SeptemberBe ready to walkLet’s show the worldWe’re more than talkW T Herring, a farmer from Broken Hill, helpseekerFriday, September 10 is World Suicide Prevention Day. Since 2012, Lifeline has been observing this day through our Out of the Shadows campaign.This year, Out of the Shadows will again unite local Lifeline centres and individuals across Australia for a significant walk at sunrise and to remember and reflect on the nine lives lost to suicide in Australia every day.Most importantly we’ll walk in solidarity to support those impacted by suicide; working together to create change and bring suicide out of the darkness and into the light. Will you join us?Face to face or virtual – we can still walk as one.Whilst COVID-19 continues to impact Australia this year, it is more important than ever to connect. We can still unite at the same time on the same day to send a collective message of hope.Lifeline centres will host face to face walks where possible and in accordance with state-based restrictions. Join your local Lifeline centre’s Out of the Shadows community walk or register your own.Set your alarm, put your shoes by the front door and take a walk on your own, with a friend (or a small group) and know that likeminded members of the community will be doing the same thing a couple of streets down, or the next town along.Will you walk with us? We ask you to help us send the clearest message of HOPE yet to those who are struggling with the impacts of suicide.
Together we can ensure no person in Australia has to face their darkest moments alone.
