A digital copy of our report is also being emailed to all staff, volunteers and supporters on our mailing lists.
Another successful year…
“We have been blessed with another successful year on all fronts,” comments Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury President Carel Bothma in his introductory remarks. ”Significant progress has been made on the strategic focus of Engagement, Prevention, Intervention and Postvention, which has allowed us to implement strategic initiatives for suicide prevention – and save lives.”
The achievements identified in the report – which include maintaining Number One position as the Lifeline centre with the highest answered call rate in the national network; a total of 115,328 calls answered; 1,110 clients seen by our face-to-face counsellors, support group facilitators and community services team-members; and 45 training programs provided – bear witness not only to the scale of what Lifeline H2H does, but also to the ever-growing need for Lifeline’s services.
Increasing prevalence of suicide
“As more people struggle with the pressure of everyday living, suicide has become more prevalent in our community,” says our CEO Wendy Carver in her message. “ Indeed, there are few among us who haven’t lost someone to suicide, or knows of someone who has.”
