About the Event

As it is Mental Health Month we think that we need to have more discussions about mental health. 

THE STATS ARE STAGGERING!

  • Nine Australians die every day by suicide. That’s more than double the road toll.
  • 75% of those who take their own life are male.
  • Over 65,000 Australians make a suicide attempt each year.
  • In 2019, 3,318 Australians took their own life.
  • Suicide is the leading cause of death for Australians between the ages of 15 and 44.
  • The suicide rate in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is twice that of their non-Indigenous counterparts.
  • People in rural populations are 2 times more likely to die by suicide.
  • LGBTI+ community members experience significantly higher rates of suicide than the rest of the population.
  • For each life lost to suicide, the impacts are felt by up to 135 people, including family members, work colleagues, friends, first responders at the time of death.
  • Males aged 85 and older experience the highest age-specific rate of suicide.
  • Same-gender attracted Australians are estimated to experience up to 14 times higher rates of attempted suicide than their heterosexual peers.
  • 1 in 4 Australians are lonely and have no-one to speak to. Lifeline is here to listen.

Our beneficiary organisation for October is Mr Perfect  a grassroots charity that brings men together at BBQs in local parks across Australia, to create community and connection. We will be discussing mental health across the board and specifically men, as they make up 75% of those who take their lives. 

Only 50 tickets available, lunch & non-alcoholic drinks provided. 50% of the ticket proceeds will be donated to Mr Perfect.
