Howie speaks to Nancy Gewargis from Anglicare about suicide prevention.
In 2021, Anglicare announced the launch of its Suicide Prevention for Seniors Program. Australian men aged over 85 have the highest rate of suicide yet are less likely to use specialty mental health services. World Suicide Prevention Day is a day reminding society that suicide is not a condition, but a preventable cause of death.
