Annual Suicide Prevention Walk
This activity was part of the Macedon Ranges Place-Based Suicide Prevention Trials
MRSPAG established the Annual Suicide Prevention Walk as part of the Macedon Ranges Place Based Suicide Prevention Trial as a way for hundreds of people to come together to remember loved ones lost to suicide. The walk brings together people from across the entire region and seeks to engage them in suicide awareness and prevention.
This activity was part of the Macedon Ranges Place-Based Suicide Prevention Trials.
Outcomes of the project included:
- Established a community support event that attracts attendees from all across the region.
- Established further support networks for those who have lost loved ones to suicide.
- Implemented an annual suicide prevention walk.
- During the pandemic, when the walk was not possible, the project delivered a week-long campaign surrounding self-care and good mental health and wellbeing.
