Winter Solstice moves online

Winter Solstice is an annual community event supporting those affected by mental illness and suicide. Due to the COVID – 19 restrictions, Winter Solstice will be a virtual online event, so this year you can help us to shine a light on the darkest night from any part of Australia or the world.

Hosted by Survivors of Suicide and Friends, Winter Solstice is in its eighth year and will feature keynote speakers including Olympic basketballer Lauren Jackson (AO), British mental health campaigner Jonny Benjamin (MBE) and mental health expert Professor Patrick McGorry (AO).

There will be musical performances by Liv Cartledge and The Northern Folk and the line up will be streamed on the Winter Solstice Facebook page.

Light a fire or a candle and join us online at the Winter Solstice.
