The ELM Network ~ Every Life Matters ~ is a suicide prevention and awareness group in Mount Alexander, established in late 2016. We are community members and service providers who have been impacted by suicide, who are passionate about mental health promotion and suicide prevention, and who want to strengthen the community we live in.

We aim to:

  • increase understanding and awareness of suicide and suicide prevention;
  • increase the capacity of the community to look after ourselves and each other; and
  • support people bereaved by suicide.

Keep up to date with what we’re up to on our facebook page here.

This  page does not provide a counselling or support service and we are not set up to respond to anyone who might be experiencing a crisis in their lives.

If it is an emergency, call 000 immediately.
