Suicide Awareness Evening in West Auckland

Who can we get support from during difficult times?

An evening where you will hear from someone who has lost loved ones to suicide and what they did to ensure both they and other families receive support in the future. Be part of a talk about…

  • How to start the conversation
  • What questions can we ask

Presenter – Mark Wilson (Solace Support Group): Mark is a member of Solace Support Group – a peer support group for those who’ve lost a loved one to suicide.
