The $64,000 question. Looking forward to taking part in a panel discussion next week at the Life Think Tank Workshop with Rebecca Lewis – Campaign Director, RUOK? and Matthew Tukaki – Chair of the National Coalition for Suicide Prevention and SPA Director discussing ‘The future of suicide prevention in Australia. With over 2,500 Australian lives lost to suicide every year, the questions need asking. I am sure there are thousands of Australians who are looking for answers, for their past, present and future. Life Think Tank Workshop – Sydney
