The hope4u foundation was founded by Director Diane Russell.
It was developed from her own lived experience of suicide after her son died from Suicide. Diane was a victim of domestic violence and had to raise her children as a single parent.
In 2016 Diane became a volunteer in local community groups supporting others that had family and individuals die from suicide.
Diane said " It was difficult to grieve from a death that nobody understood."
Grief from a suicide is unique because you dont always know the answers to why they died.

How does a family continue when a second son loses his battle to depression and he dies from suicide.
it affects a partner, cousins. Uncles. Aunts, brothers and parents.
I have now lost my second son to depression and his life to suicide.
my youngest son Aaron at the age of 27 had depression and words and what if’s will never bring him back.
i don’t want to be another statistic or example of the role on affects of suicide. It is real it is damaging.
talk about your darkness and your personal struggles don’t let society put pressure on you to feel ashamed.
Born in New Zealand, 1984. He was the second eldest son of six children. Jason moved to Australia with his siblings. Married and had two beautiful children. Jason died from suicide in November 2015.
As a mum i wanted to stop the stigma around suicide. Our family had been through so much grief from the loss of Jason that I wanted to start an awareness about suicide and the impact it has on families.
I reached out to the community and to the local council. I wanted to stop suicide. Creating HOPE4U means reaching to others and supporting them and offering services such as counselling and support. Hope4u is about supporting you.

Even though it rained the hope walk 2021 went ahead. Suicide does not stop regardless of the weather. Great support from those that walked and from the messages from friends far away.
Started by Diane Tracy Marie Russell after the sad loss of her son, the aim is to let everyone know it is OK to talk about it, seek help and support each other.
We have endured some very hard times over the past 12 months or so. Many people have felt vulnerable, isolated and under intense pressure. Reaching out to those around you to let them know there is help available is something we all can do. Small things such as giving a smile, stopping for a chat or offering to help out can really make a difference to someone having a challenging time.
