Your readers may be able to help me. Many people are affected by suicide in our society.

I am a research higher-degree student at Central Queensland University investigating how people re-engage with life after a suicide attempt, that is, how they recover and get well, and I am looking for people, aged 18 and over, who have lived through this experience and would like to tell me about it.

I believe that talking about suicide saves lives. In the end suicide, like child protection, is everyone’s business. We are each other’s keeper. As a community, we need to start talking about suicide, we need to learn about the myths of suicide, and how to recognise and respond to vulnerable people at risk of suicide before it is too late.

Each of us can make a difference, if we know how.

Anyone who would like to know more about the study can contact me at [email protected]
