Community Suicide Awareness
Our actions, no matter how big or small, can provide hope to those who are struggling. Preventing suicide is often possible.
Through action, you can make a difference to someone in their darkest moments – as a member of society, as a child, as a parent, as a friend, as a colleague or as a neighbour. We can all play a role in supporting those experiencing a suicidal crisis or those bereaved by suicide.
Throughout the session we will explore who may be at risk, suicide safe language, possible warning signs to look for and how to support someone who may be thinking of suicide to find appropriate resources.
PLEASE NOTE: This session is not a clinical training, but rather an opportunity to raise awareness about mental health and to provide participants with tools and resources.
