Helping hands for rural mental health

ADDRESSING causes and prevention of suicide and other mental health issues was the focus of a "Mental Health in the Bush" evening at Ceduna, as a part of Mental Health Week and the Suicide: It’s No Secret campaign.

Organised through the Mental Health team at Ceduna Health Centre, led by Julie Kurenda of Ceduna Mental Health and Uniting Church minister Reverend Sue Ellis, the information session aimed to break the silence on suicide, let the community know there is help available and to look out for the signs of mental illness or depression.

"Suicide: It’s No Secret" is a Uniting Church campaign which aims to get people to be more open about the causes of suicide and how it can be prevented.
