Suicide prevention attracts 100 walkers
The Out of the Shadows Suicide Prevention Walk attracted over 100 walkers to Umina Beach on Sunday, September 8
A remembrance ceremony was held after the walk for those lost to suicide.
An initiative of suicide prevention service Lifeline, Out of the Shadows Walks have been held at Umina Beach for the past three years to coincide with National Suicide Prevention Day.
A community breakfast was held at the Umina Surf Club afterwards.
The walk was successful according to Coast Community Connections chief executive Mr Bruce Davis, who coordinated the walk.
He said it was a show of solidarity for those who lost their lives to suicide and support for those affected by it.
"Gathering after the walk gave everyone a chance to support each other and speak with Coast Community Connections and Lifeline counsellors," Mr Davis said.
