The Walk Towards Hope - Dubbo 10 September

Suicide Awareness, Prevention and Support
10th September 2011 - World Suicide Prevention Day


On the 10th of September each year people around the globe demonstrate a worldwide commitment and action to prevent suicide.  This year the NALAG Suicide Network is organising

"The Walk Towards Hope"

This walk aims to:

Promote awareness of suicide prevention
Provide a Remembrance Ceremony for lives lost to suicide
Shine a light on the issue of suicide in the Dubbo region

When:   Saturday 10th September 2011
Time     11.30am - The walk will start from Bob Jane T-Marts in Macquarie St
             12 noon - Remembering Ceremony
             12.30 - Lunch
Cost:     Free BBQ Lunch

"We hope to shine a light on the issue of suicide in the Dubbo region, promote help-seeking and acceptance for those who might have suicidal thoughts and provide a remembrance ceremony to remember those who have lost their lives to suicide. There is also the opportunity to get together as a community and socialise with others over a free BBQ."


'We hope that as many community members as possible can attend on the day to stand in solidarity to support this very important issue.


Also, any organisations or groups who would like to walk as a team, or donate resources and service information to information bags are also more than welcome to do so.'
