Help Reduce Suicide rates in Australia

Suicide Prevention Australia


I created this organisation to raise awareness about suicide in Australia. I along with millions of others around the globe, have lost someone close due to Suicide.


In Australia more than 2000 people a year take their own lives - this is more than deaths caused from traffic accidents.


Australia has one of the highest rates of suicide in the developed world;


Statistically, men are four times more like to take their own life than women;


Suicide and self-harm remain unacceptably high in the Australian community with death at least 40% higher than that attributed to the national road fatalities.

Every day, six to seven Australians die by suicide.

For each person lost by suicide, there are 30 others who have made a suicide attempt.

For every suicide, it is conservatively estimated that, on average, another six people will be severely affected by intense grief.
Many people bereaved by the suicide of a loved one are themselves at-risk of suicidal ideation;


Suicide prevention strategies of the recent past prove that preventative strategies work!


It is estimated that for each completed
suicide of a young male, there are 15
or more attempts, while for every
completed female suicide, there are
more than 100 attempts.
