Letter to the Editor - Saturday, July 25: Suicide prevention
OUT of the shadows symbolises the emergence of suicide from a taboo topic, out of the shadows into the light.
We hope the event, held to mark world Suicide Prevention Day, reinforces what we believe to be the key themes surrounding our national response to suicide - hope, recovery, reflection and prevention.
Out of the Shadows is so important because we believe it will help to raise awareness of suicide prevention and encourage help-seeking.
That's why we hope many different people from many different communities participate.
This is all part of our campaign to get the community talking about suicide, learning about suicide prevention and connecting with each other to save lives.
The Coffs Harbour Out of the Shadows Walk will be held on Sunday, September 13, from Park Beach Reserve.
