Tuesday 10 September marked World Suicide Prevention Day
Suicide is the leading cause of death among Australians aged between 15 and 44. More than 3000 Australians end their lives each year – this is around 8 people a day. It deeply affects friends, families and communities. To prevent suicide and reduce these numbers, it is important to make sure all Australians get the support they need.
To commemorate World Suicide Prevention Day, the Sonder team arranged a walk at 6am on Tuesday 10 September.
Over 100 people gathered at the Torrens Footbridge to commence a 4.5 km route to raise awareness, support one another, remember those lost to suicide and unite in an ongoing commitment to prevent further deaths by suicide.
After a chilly start, the group warmed up with kind conversation and good coffee as they made their way through the route.
We would like to warmly thank everyone who took the time to join us for our walk.
