Every year during Sock it to Suicide week, we
encourage everyone to wear bright coloured socks
to their workplace, school, etc and donate a gold
coin in support of the White Wreath Association.
In Australia we have to come to terms with the trauma of thousands of our fellow citizens (men, women and children) suiciding every year. For those left behind by these tragedies the hurt is no less traumatic and yet society's response to these surviving families and friends is vastly different from the help offered in other kinds of
medical and social tragedies. It seems that no one cares or
understands that the families and friends of suicide victims are in as
much need of help and support as other members of our Australian
society and are just as deserving of our understanding and respect.
We have been creating - in the wider community - awareness of the misunderstandings relating to mental illness and providing
community education concerning the lack of appropriate treatment.
We have established National White Wreath Day (29th May) in
Remembrance of all Victims of Suicide We are contactable 24 hrs a
day for anyone who is in need. We have a website with all our
information. We have branches Australia wide. Our objectives are to
raise sufficient funds to establish a Safehaven Centre for those who
want a 'place of safety' at times when suicide threatens. With your
help we will achieve our goal and together reduce the frightening
suicide figures that are growing at a staggering rate.
First week of October 2007
Sock it to Suicide
Choose one day to involve the workplace, school, social club, senior citizen club, etc to wear coloured socks or stockings. Make a donation of a gold coin for the privilege.
