Make Your Mark

MakeYourMark.jpgI’ve created a hand print in support of Indigenous suicide prevention, now it’s your turn to leave a mark at Lifeline’s Make Your Mark site.

Suicide is such a devastating way to lose members of our communities. It’s heart breaking to think that some people believe that death by their own hand is a better alternative than continuing to live.

Did you know suicide among Indigenous Australians is up to 40%* higher than in the general Australian population?
It’s also believed this figure is under reported. (*Living is for Everyone, 2008)

By creating your own hand print you will be showing your support for Indigenous healing, emotional wellbeing and suicide prevention.

For every handprint created the NRL (Rugby League) will donate one dollar to Lifeline for this cause. You can also donate directly.

Your participation will help Lifeline connect Indigenous communities with services and resources to support individuals and families into the future.
