Northside Group proudly supports ‘Beat The Breakdown’

Aug 31, 2017

Northside Group proudly supports ‘Beat The Breakdown’ a charity built to drive the conversation surrounding suicide.

Every day, more than eight Australians take their life. This equates to over 3,000 suicides every year. For every death by suicide, it is estimated that as many as 30 people attempt to end their lives. That means approximately 65,300 Aussies attempt to take their life each year.

Targeting the youth demographic, Beat The Breakdown aims to reduce suicide by encouraging youth to speak up about their mental health, as every conversation is one more step in reducing stigma.

“Having all been touched by suicide at some stage in our lives, we are determined to take the conversations around suicide one step further. We want people to talk, we want people to listen, but most importantly, we want to make sure our friends, family and every single Australian that is fighting their own mental health battle, feels supported.” Beat The Breakdown
