Loud Shirt Friday is an initiative created by medical professionals to raise aware of suicide amongst their colleagues, and help to build a network of support for those who are most often looked to for their kindness and empathy.
"Loud Shirt Friday allows all hospital staff to show support and help raise awareness. Doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and all allied health staff will be asked to don a loud shirt and show support. A day full of colour whilst not losing sight of the sombre realities that have prompted the event. Reminding us all to look out for each other, ensure we debrief when tragedy strikes and provide an ear or shoulder when one is required"
The inaugural Loud Shirt Friday takes place this Friday October 20th. Show your support by pledging a donation through Beyond Blue, and be automatically entered into the draw to take home this amazing Michael Saker painting.
