Suicide Memorial Event today – everyone is welcome.

Wesley Mission is holding its Wesley LifeForce Suicide Memorial Service Day in Sydney today at 12 noon – and everyone is welcome.

It’s at Yallamundi Rooms of the Sydney Opera House.

You can be with other people in a supportive community who know what you’ve been through or are going through because others who’ll be there know the experience of being bereaved by suicide.

At today’s suicide memorial service there will be music, a message of hope and the sharing of stories – something which is very comforting.

You can add to the memorial wall and cast sunflowers to remember people special to you.

Those family members who’ve attended the event in previous years say it’s very moving and uplifting. There are other events around NSW too.

Wesley LifeForce provides suicide prevention services that educate and empower local communities, supporting people most at risk. It also runs Suicide Memorial Days in other parts of Australia.

Established in 1995 by Wesley Mission, Wesley LifeForce began as a response to the growing number of suicides in Australia and has since trained more than 40,000 Australians in suicide prevention skills in metropolitan, regional and remote Australia.

Wesley LifeForce is recognised as both a leading provider of ethical and effective suicide prevention services, and as an organisation that empowers and resources Australian communities to reduce suicide.
