The episodes feature Annette Baker – a community advocate, spokeswoman and fundraiser for issues around mental health and suicide. In 2011 her 15 year old daughter, Mary, took her own life after a three year battle with an eating disorder. It was then that Annette and her husband vowed to fight to remove the stigma and silence associated with suicide and raise funds and awareness in the Albury Wodonga region and beyond.
Read more about Annette’s story. Or watch the trailer for the documentary that begins with the story of Mary’s parents. The film expands out to journey across Australia documenting the stories of those who are daily on the frontline in the battle for better mental health care – the survivors of suicide.
