Peel residents and service providers will gather in Pinjarra on Tuesday to remember loved ones who have died by suicide as part of World Suicide Prevention Day.

The Murray Suicide Awareness Network is hosting the event, Speak Their Name, which will start at 1pm and finish at 2.30pm at the Henry Street boat ramp.

Attendees will be encouraged to paint a rock and place it in the river, to remember someone who has died by suicide.
