Keep on Keeping On: Carnival for a Cause | Auckland 7 Dec 2014

Third Annual Suicide Prevention Awareness Carnival

  • Date: 7 December
  • Time: 13:00–16:00
  • Place: Corban Estate Arts Centre, 2 Mt Lebanon Lane, Henderson, Auckland

Keep on Keeping On is the annual festival where we all come together to have fun in the sun at the same time as we learn about suicide prevention, who we can all turn to in our time of need or how to talk about a loved one at risk. 

This year’s event features carnival rides and games, FREE Santa photos, a market filled with local groups and organizations who work hard to make our community a great place to be, and also lots of local organizations that are here to help us if we are feeling a bit confused or down or just need a good old chin wag.

This year the event is welcoming back YOUTHLINE, and the WALSH TRUST and joined by groups like MAN ALIVE, ADHB SEXUAL HEALTH, CASPER and many many more, in the hope of letting people know exactly who they can turn to if they are in need.
