Townsville’s suicide rate is 2.5 times the national average.^
The Mentally Healthy City Townsville project was established to find a way to improve our city’s mental health, educate the community and promote prevention and early intervention. To do this, we need both funding and support.
This Australia-first initiative is backed by mental health research bodies, health organisations and financial partners.
