2017 Searchlight Dinner BOOK HERE BUTTON 2

Searchlight Dinner puts the spotlight on research.

This year’s dinner will be focusing on mental health research, particularly suicide prevention.

In Victoria alone, more than 500 deaths every year are caused by suicide – this is over double our road toll.

Suicide is a common cause of death in young people aged 15 to 24, in men aged 35 to 50, and in senior people over 75 years old.

Suicide does not discriminate, affecting people from across all socio-economic levels, ethnicities and genders. The sad reality is that there is no one reason or cause that leads a person to suicide.

Eastern Health is committed to progress research that can identify triggers towards suicide and discover methods to reduce and ultimately prevent suicide.

Help us raise awareness and funds for suicide prevention

Join us on Tuesday 31 October at the Plaza Ballroom, and be part of a magical heart-felt night.

This is a terrific opportunity to rub shoulders and mingle with over 400 leading medical, research and community members, whilst raising funds for a very worthy cause.

So book a seat, buy a table, bid on an auction item, or pledge a financial gift - your support will help benefit people living with mental illness.
