Lifeline Australia needs our help!

I have signed Lifeline’s petition calling on our Government to take urgent action to reduce the suicide death toll. This issue is important to me.

Suicide is a terrible tragedy that touches far too many families and communities every year. It’s a national emergency that needs to be addressed.

It tears children, parents, siblings, partners and friends away from loved ones, and leaves a legacy of heartache and sadness.

Suicide takes more young lives in Australia than road accidents or cancer, but suicide prevention only gets half the government funding of road safety.

It’s a shocking and outrageous situation – and it demands an urgent response from our leaders. We can do better.

We urgently need a National Suicide Prevention Plan. A  plan – like those developed in up to 30 countries around the world – gives us the best chance of coming together to make a real difference and save lives.

I stand with Lifeline and support the development of a National Suicide Prevention Plan.

So will you join me?

With that many Australians demanding action we have a much better chance of getting it – and saving lives.
