This episode follows on from that story.

We talk to some of the frontliners who are there for people in our community in their darkest hour – including a representative from the newly opened Bega Safe Haven, and our local representative from StandBy Support after Suicide, who experienced her father’s suicide around seven years ago.

And if you or someone you know is struggling, you can call Lifeline 24/7 on 13 11 14 or the Kids Helpline on 1800 551 800.
