Suicide

Suicide has the potential to affect anyone of us. Many people who are suicidal want to end their pain and suffering rather than end their life.

If you are concerned for yourself or someone else it is important to talk about what is going on. Having that conversation around suicide with someone you trust can be extraordinarily helpful in highlighting the issues and the resources and supports available.

You can talk confidentially* to one of the Employee Assistance Officers, during normal working hours, on 0761 000030. Also please see suggested external supports on the Suicidal Distress Resource List below.
