Raised so far
Every week one young Western Australian dies by suicide.
It's a statistic we're familiar with: suicide is the leading cause of death for young people under the age of 25 in Western Australia. It's time to take action. Step up this Mental Health Week (8 to 15 October 2022) to show young people they are not alone. Together, we can change young lives.
