'Sixteen Australians tell their stories of surviving suicide and finding the way back to a better life.

'Every day, nine Australians take their own lives. Eighteen years ago, John Brogden came very close to adding his name to these statistics. But John survived and, since his recovery, he has become a passionate voice for mental health and suicide prevention. He is now the President of Lifeline International.

'Personally and professionally, John knows how urgent it is to talk openly about suicide, and to provide those in despair with a way back when they are at their lowest point. Giving hope to those who think there is no other way out is critical. John is living proof there is a way to survive and thrive.

'Now, in Profiles in Hope, John is shattering the wall of silence and shame around suicide. And, to help him, he has gathered together some incredible Australians to tell their stories. With contributions from well-known people, such as Jacquie Lambie, Layne Beachley, Preston Campbell and Ian Thorpe, alongside powerful stories of ordinary Aussies who came through to the other side, these deeply personal accounts of survival, recovery and lives of purpose are a balm to vulnerability, and a beacon of light to those struggling. This book is for those at risk and the people who love them and don't know how to help.

'Searingly honest and ultimately life-affirming, these are stories of solace and hope and a lifeline for dark times.' (Publication summary)
