Out of the Shadows
Lifeline Macarthur is hosting their annual Out of the Shadows Walk on Saturday 12th September at The Australian Botanic Garden, Mt Annan.
As part of World Suicide Prevention Day on 10th September, Lifeline holds this walk to remember and reflect on loved ones lost to suicide, support those that are left behind and to raise awareness within their communities on the topic of suicide prevention.
Show your support and commitment to preventing suicide and remember those lost to suicide by joining Lifeline Macarthur.
Guests are invited to attend from 7.30am with the walk starting at 8am followed by a special commemoration service and morning tea.

Telephone Crisis Support Training Course
Lifeline Macarthur is one of 42 centres around Australia providing volunteers to answer the 13 11 14 crisis support line.
As demand for our crisis support service increases, we are always in need of more volunteers to join our team and help answer these calls.
Becoming a Telephone Crisis Supporter is a great way to give back to your local community, learn new skills and obtain a recognised qualification.
The course is a combination of face to face group work and e-learning modules. No previous experience is necessary - all we ask for is a willingness to learn and have a non-judgmental and accepting manner.
Our next course starts on 26 September.
If you would like to find out more about volunteering with Lifeline Macarthur, please call 02 4645 7200.
