About 200 came to the event. Many in attendance thanked me for enabling this special event to happen, and that is immediate feedback from our community. I’ve worked in Community Development for over 19 years and I cannot remember ever receiving so many ‘Good on you’s’ after the event as I received last night. The most common comment from those who spoke to me last night was how relatable Osher’s story was as he gave his presentation in language that ordinary people can identify with. Social media and local media are all over this event I’ve seen today – even my boss, who is in Hobart for a Suicide Prevention Conference which coincided with this event, rang me this morning to congratulate me telling me he’d already seen so many positive comments on various forms of social media.
