Providing suicide prevention support, bereavement support, peer support, therapy and advocacy.
Our mission is to reduce the rate of suicide and suicidal behaviour by:
Promoting suicide prevention strategies
Community education and support
Life Matters encourages and facilitates open dialogue in the community about the causes and effects of suicide.
We organise a wide range of suicide prevention training workshops and information evenings with relevant speakers as well as regular ongoing bereavement and prevention support.
Life Matters also organises important events in our community as HopeWalk and World Suicide prevention Day.
More about us
Life Matters Suicide Prevention Trust works across all three areas of suicide response - prevention, intervention and postvention (bereavement). It is a Dunedin-based charity formed 6 years ago in response to New Zealand’s suicide statistics and the lack of support services for people who are suicidal.
