2500 Empty Shoes Memorial

Over 75% of all suicides are men and boys and by working on this main factor we raise awareness of situational distress/mental health issues that affect our entire community.

2500 Empty Shoes is a memorial event for the families to have recognition of their lost loved ones. 

This is a public presentation on the lawns of Parliament House, with lived experience speeches taking priority in a family friendly environment to mark International Men’s Day 2023.
