The Rosbrien Suicide Awareness Group was formed by a concerned group of parents because of recent tragedies in the Rosbrien area. Our aim is to create an awareness of the epidemic problem of suicide and make information on services available known to the public.
Our main concern is for the families and youth of the area.
We intend to become Active Listeners for all those concerned and those who have been affected by suicide. We also intend to very carefully examine the National Task Force Report on Suicide 1998 and ensure the full implementation of its 84 recommendations.
We propose to help improve bereavement support services presently available, by using our groups own experiences as guidelines of shortfalls, and, to make the community aware of these services.
