ABOUT THE CAUSE
MRSPAG is made up of community members with lived experience and representatives from local service providers who work together to prevent suicide in the Macedon Ranges.
In 2012 Macedon Ranges Shire Council analysed data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics relating to the cause of death of Macedon Ranges Shire residents between 1989 and 2010. This data indicated that the suicide rate for Macedon Ranges was trending upward, opposite to the downward state and national trends observed during that period.
Wooling Hill is proudly supporting this worthy cause and as a local business, this is the first of many community events that we will be facilitating.
