Join news and current affairs journalist Mike Munro and a panel of experts as they discuss Australia’s response to the first ever World Health Organization (WHO) World Suicide Report.
As we know, suicide impacts many of us. In Australia alone 65,000 attempt to take their own lives each year. This statistic is alarming and sadly, it doesn't get much better globally.
World Suicide Prevention Day marks the release of a report conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO). The report follows the adoption of the Mental Health Action Plan which commits all 194 member states to reducing their suicide rates by 10% by 2020.
What are our strengths? What do we need to do better?
