World Suicide Prevention Day 2020

More than 120 people attended ‘Working Together to Keep Each Other Safe’, the World Suicide Prevention Day event in Alice Springs on September 10.

MHACA, in partnership with Central Australian Aboriginal Congress, National indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA), Drug and Alcohol Services Australia (DASA), and Tangentyere Men’s Family Safety Group
hosted the community event to highlight the important role of communities working together in suicide prevention.

World Suicide Prevention Day is a day to remember those who have died by suicide and it is about acknowledging families, friends, workplaces and communities who have been impacted by suicide.

A local focus for the event was the issue of suicide and Aboriginal men, and it was great to hear about some of the programs that are supporting men and mental health more broadly in our community. Attendees were part of a smoking ceremony for healing led by local Elder Sabella Turner, and enjoyed a BBQ and music with Jessie K and Anders.
