The Salvation Army Australia Eastern Territory has prepared some resources for corps and social centres and services for world suicide prevention day on 10 September. Suicide claims the lives of over 2,000 people each year; more fatalities than the road toll in this country. For every person who dies there are another eight people impacted. It is estimated that more than 16,000 Australians are traumatised by suicide each year.
The resources look to help Salvationists and Salvation Army staff and clients ‘commemorate people they know who have died to suicide, provide healing and hope to people struggling with issues to do with suicide’.
