Today is World Suicide Prevention Day

worldsuicidepreventiondaylogoToday is World Suicide Prevention Day and TMS is proud to help raise awareness of this important issue.

Each day in Australia we lose six people to suicide and this needs to change. Join TMS in getting behind Suicide Prevention Australia’s campaign to halve suicides in the country by 2023.
How can you help?

This year just prior to World Suicide Prevention Day, you, along with all Australians, were asked to cast your vote to elect our political leaders in the federal election.

With all the one-upmanship and empty promises thrown around during the election, it can be hard to see how your vote will make a difference.

But there is one meaningful vote that you can make right now. A vote that will help save lives. A vote that shouts to your family and friends that you treasure them and that you will be there for them if the going ever gets tough. It is a vote for suicide prevention.

For the last two decades, under both major political parties, we have seen little change in the number of Aussies lost to suicide. We consistently lose around 2,300 people each year.

We know that the reasons for suicide are complex but we believe that most suicide is preventable.

We have drawn a line in the sand and say, enough: It is time for a new approach.

Suicide Prevention Australia is leading the National Coalition for Suicide Prevention to deliver a new approach to suicide prevention. Their goal is to halve suicide in Australia by 2023. However, to achieve this they need the government to join the National Coalition for Suicide Prevention.

Your support is needed to convince them. That is why we are asking you to Vote 1 for suicide prevention today and with this vote we will show our political leaders that Australia has our back, that Australians have sent a clear message that they demand the government take suicide seriously and join the National Coalition for Suicide Prevention.
