Carpe Diem is a contemporary portrayal of every day Australian males dealing with issues of health, grief, loss and depression. Touring regional and remote Australia since 2015 the response to the show has been unanimous. Written by playwright, Megan Rigoni, Carpe Diem is a highly entertaining live theatre event addressing suicide prevention. It stresses the importance of professional care in times of crises and the importance of mate ship and looking out for each other. With performances by actors John Walker (Full Frontal) and Chris Pidd (actor/community devt. specialist), the success of Carpe Diem being attributed to:  the play  the excellent performances  the Q&A facilitated by Chris Pidd (trained in Suicide Prevention)  the meet and greet afterwards Evidence from Lifeline Australia and Beyond Blue tell us that rural areas have a higher incidence of depression and suicide arising from unique social and environmental factors not experienced in urban communities. This is keenly evident in farming communities that have been impacted by drought and fire. Carpe Diem is designed to educate audiences to:  be proactive and mindful of their mental health  seek professional help when needed  talk to friends, family and colleagues about feelings of vulnerability, grief and loss  accept that life can be difficult but in time will improve  break down the stigma associated with suicide and mental illness  support family and friends in their mental health journey
