Suicide prevention

Suicide prevention is everyone’s business and it starts with me, with you, with us. On this page you will find important information that can be used when you or someone you know needs support to stay safe. Resources that assist in recognising signs in yourself or others and knowing how to have conversations and where to seek support.

If immediate help is required, call 000
