SPAN Geelong FAQ
SPAN Answers Your Questions
Can anyone become involved with your service?
At SPAN we encourage involvement from the community as we aim to create Geelong suicide awareness and reduce the number of suicides in our community. The more people we have involved, the easier it is to raise funds to support programs and keep a well informed and open discussion continuing.
When is the Geelong Suicide Awareness Walk held?
On Australia Day, January 26, of each year. This is because suicide is an issue that affects all of Australia. In Australia, more people die of suicide each year than in road accidents.
How can I help someone I feel is at risk of suicide?
Don’t assume they will get help. See our list of suicide warning signs which may help you identify if someone needs help. If you have any concern, act promptly and call a relevant suicide help service.
