Wesley LifeForce will host a meeting for Robinvale community members on Wednesday 17 July with the aim of establishing a suicide prevention network.
Wesley LifeForce works with communities around Australia to bring together local individuals and organisations that go on to develop local suicide prevention strategies. Currently there are more than 100 community-based suicide prevention networks across the nation.
The CEO of Wesley Mission, the Rev Keith V Garner AM, encourages residents to get involved.
“The aim is to empower people to tackle this difficult issue in a manner best suited to the needs of people living in Robinvale,” he said.
“Simple effective interventions can make a difference and save lives–and Wesley LifeForce can help communities to develop local activities that address the issue of suicide.”
The meeting will be held at 6 pm on Wednesday 17 July 2019 at the Community Arts Centre, 37 Robin St, Robinvale.
