The Sunshine & Cooloola Coasts/Caboolture Suicide Bereavement Remembrance Day (September 8, 2012) is an event to remember those who have been lost through suicide in our local communities and to acknowledge those bereaved family, friends and associates who have been left behind. On the Sunshine Coast, United Synergies and the StandBy Response Service will host a special remembrance ceremony at Picnic Point, Maroochydore commencing at 10am to coincide with World Suicide Prevention Day.

The day will feature the words and thoughts of people bereaved by suicide, a presentation by the Caloundra Living Beyond Suicide Support Group and other guest speakers. Activities will include a brief Remembrance Ceremony, followed by the release of doves and the opportunity for individuals to place flowers of remembrance in the river, in acknowledgement of the significance of this day for our communities.

Children’s activities with parental supervision will also be available. Those attending are invited to bring photos of those they have lost and themselves, as people who continue to live beyond suicide, as well as a picnic lunch, tea and coffee etc for informal sharing after the event.

This Suicide Bereavement Remembrance Day is an opportunity for all members of the community to come together and acknowledge and support those who have lost a precious person from their lives. Sunshine and Cooloola Coast StandBy Response Service Coordinator Lynda Neville said that over the past 10 years StandBy had assisted more than 1000 people bereaved by suicide, from Cooloola to Caboolture. Any person bereaved by suicide wanting further information or support is encouraged to contact StandBy on 5442 4277. People in crisis can also contact Lifeline on 131114.
