President of Lifeline International John Brogden told the lunch that sadly, attempting suicide is still a crime in some countries.
Mr Brogden announced Brunei had become the organisations 25th member country.
“We now have a member on every continent, working actively on a daily basis to help people in crisis and prevent suicide,” he said.
“I’m very proud of our growth across a range of key areas over the past 24 months.
We are doing this to benefit our members and to save lives – because suicide, everywhere in the world, is preventable.”
The PAYCE Foundation team were joined at the lunch by the executive of the Curran Foundation.
Recently sworn-in NSW Premier Chris Minns was the special guest, pledging to continue state government support for Lifeline.
PAYCE Foundation director Dominic Sullivan said: “Every person in the world struggling with mental illness deserves our understanding and support.”
“Lifeline International is delivering a service that will save lives.”
