Australia is often thought of as “the lucky country”. So why is it that eight people a day die from suicide?
The situation is nothing short of a national crisis. Yet the experts agree that there are ways we can be better dealing with the issues. The SBS documentary ‘Osher Günsberg: A Matter of Life and Death’ will provide a comprehensive portrait of suicide in Australia today. Through the prism of Osher Günsberg’s own mental health experience, he’ll investigate why suicide rates remain high in Australia, and feature what is being done to mitigate the problem. The documentary will focus on solutions and what Australia and Australians can do to reduce the national suicide rate. In fact, the mission statement of this film is to go beyond the informative. Its charter is to be part of the solution and actually help stop suicide by offering hope and some practical answers.
