Lifeline joins international activities to observe World Suicide Prevention Day in September each year, a time to provide an opportunity to discuss suicide prevention openly and respectfully. Suicide is sobering, serious and saddening to talk about but understanding when, how, why and who should talk about suicide is important. Being able to provide opportunities for people to explore this complex issue via training programs such as LivingWorks Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) and safeTALK allows for appropriate discussions and for people to learn how to keep someone with thoughts of suicide safe.
As a community, we need to recognise that those vulnerable to the possibility of suicide do not have the emotional resources and support to cope with their challenges. Identifying and assisting them are important elements of suicide prevention. We need to be able to connect with those people with thoughts of suicide and those bereaved by suicide by providing support, appropriate resources, care and listening. By making suicide prevention everybody's business, we can change attitudes and connect with those in need.
