Suicide

By July 10, 2019 No Comments

Even the word suicide has become taboo in our society, but the reality is that suicide remains the leading cause of death for Australians aged between 15 and 44. Situations such as depression and anxiety, the breakdown of a relationship, retrenchment/unemployment or other mental conditions can all lead to a person attempting to end their own life.

If you have attempted to take your own life, it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Trained medical professionals can support you and explain resources that you can access to help you stay safe.
