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 to support individuals in suicide intervention, but rather an opportunity to raise awareness to the concerns of suicide and how to develop capacity to become a suicide safe environment.
Who Should Attend? This workshop is for adults 18 and over.
Duration: 180 minutes (3 hrs)
Fee: $600 plus tax (Non-Profit rate available. Inquire within)
