World Suicide Prevention Day

World Suicide Prevention Day


Suicide rates are only rising, with a predicted 25-50% annual increase in national suicides that may continue over the next five years due to the devastating social and economic impacts of COVID-19

 

  • Suicide remains the leading cause of death for Australians aged between 15 and 24
  • NSW accounted for the highest (29.5% ) of all deaths by suicide in Australia
  • NSW was the only state to increase in numbers of registered deaths due to suicide from 2017-2018

 

Having suffered from deep depression and setting himself a date to 'end it all,' Dr Dain Heer speaks to thousands of people each year and now travels the globe to bring hope to others battling "unworthiness." He maintains that suicide is the result of feeling worthless and "wrong" in the face of societal ideals and pressures. 

 

Dr Dain Heer says we need to "empower children from a young age, ensuring that they truly believe they are enough and their differences are their strength."

 

"What if children were told consistently that they are a gift from the moment they were born? That they can be and do absolutely anything they wanted? What if children were told daily how grateful we are for their existence? What could they create then? What would be possible then?" Dr Heer says.

 

"Giving someone the opportunity to see themselves as valuable and capable - that they have a gift to offer the world - is the most powerful thing you can do for another human being. Every life lost means we still have work to do." 

 

Dr Dain Heer is also the the author of the recently published children's book, The Baby Unicorn Manifesto, aims to inspire tomorrow's leaders.
