Lifeline Hunter Central Coast invites you to join us at our free annual events for World Suicide Prevention Day on Friday 8 September 2017 at Dixon Park Beach.
5:45am – Walk from Dixon Park Surf Club to Merewether Baths (return)
7am – 8.30am – Suicide Awareness Festival at Dixon Park
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.Learn more
Hope on the Harbour9th September 2017 10.30am - 2.30pm Doyles on the Beach, Watsons Bay
“A lesson for all of us is that for every loss, there is victory, for every sadness, there is joy, and when you think you’ve lost everything, there is hope.” – Geraldine Solon
Hope on the Harbour is our memorial event remembering those loved ones lost to suicide.
In partnership with Doyles on the Beach and VIP Water Taxis, we bring people together to support the bereaved and aim to give them hope.
We set sail on the water, from the gorgeous backdrop of Doyles on the Beach at Watsons Bay, sharing our favourite memories of those people as we sail. Attendees release flowers into the water to remember their loved ones and we return to Doyles on the Beach to enjoy food and to continue the conversation.Learn more
The event is extremely powerful and has created very special bonds between the people who have attended.
