Event description
A special one-of-a-kind opportunity to attend the Melbourne launch of the global suicide-prevention series 'Reasons to Live'

About this Event

Every year in Australia, over 2500 people take their lives. Every day, more than 6 Australians lose their battle with hope.

The reality is, life can be overwhelming. Between the daily grind of a 9-5 job, making time for loved ones, and trying to stay fit and healthy, there’s often little time to care for ourselves. And opening up about the fact that you’re not okay? Well, that can feel terrifying.

But just like physical trauma, mental pain should never be ignored. So if you, or someone you know, is struggling with your mental health, underlying trauma, or thoughts of despair, this event is one not to miss!

A LITTLE ABOUT THE EVENT

Following on from the fantastic response to her first book 'Reasons to Live: One More Day, Every Day,' Brisbane author and mental health speaker Jas Rawlinson is coming to Melbourne to launch her highly anticipated second volume!

As a survivor of family violence and sexual assault, Jas will share on the day about her personal story of learning to thrive after trauma, and transforming from a shy, suicidal teen to a strong mental health advocate and author.

Jas will also be joined by several of her co-authors, including Jason Rantall (Bipolar warrior and Founder of Bettermentall Together), and Angela McFarlane (Survivor of domestic violence and rape).

Copies of Reasons to Live will be available for sale on the day.

A LITTLE ABOUT THE BOOK 'REASONS TO LIVE'

Endorsed by high profile mental health advocates, organisations and medical professionals (including Kevin Hines, Prof. Patrick McGorry, Lifeline Hunter Valley, and members of Royal Flying Doctor Service), Reasons to Live is an inspiring collection of short stories from people around the world who've found a way to triumph over their trauma or past adversities.

** Important info: Best entry for the event is near the David Jones entrance (Car Park A).

** Many thanks to C3 Casey for sponsoring this event and supporting the message of suicide prevention and domestic violence awareness.
