This TV commercial (below) has just been released in support of World Suicide Prevention Day (which is 10 September, 2014).

Directed, produced and created by Ingvar Kenne and Jason Loucas, it features personalities Jessica Rowe, Steve Waugh, Jesinta Campbell, Justine Clarke, Luke Carroll, Steve Willis, Mia Freedman and Alex Perry all speaking out about the importance of connecting to services and support.

They say: "Our thanks to everyone involved in the project, particularly Trish Heagerty, a Suicide Prevention Australia community supporter and an inspiration."

Here's the moving video:

WSPD add: "Talking openly about suicide is so important but, remember, your number one priority should always be self care so if watching this triggers emotions in you, please talk about how you're feeling with a trusted friend or family member - or get in touch with people at Lifeline (phone 13 11 14 or online chat at https://www.lifeline.org.au/Get-Help/...), Suicide Call Back (1300 659 467), Men's Line (phone 1300 78 99 78) or Kids Helpline (phone 1800 55 1800). Take care, the SPA team."

With the spotlight on recent deaths of high profile celebrities (Robin Williams, Simone Battle, Charlotte Dawson, and L'Wren Scott, and all by suicide/hanging, this is a very relevant, urgent, important conversation to have with our loved ones.
