Community members represent numerous ‘TouchPoints’ for person to seek and receive help.
This informative and interactive workshop is designed specifically to give community members an insight into suicide through the lens of people who have personally experienced it, and equip them with the right knowledge and practical tools to reduce the emotional pain experienced by many around us, and even save a life.
This workshop is different from other Gatekeeper training in that it’s evidence based content is interwoven with the expertise of people who have experienced suicide first hand. We share what can be helpful, what may not work so well, and most importantly how best to support people at risk, as well as people bereaved through suicide.
Workshops are delivered by professional facilitators who also have a personal lived experience of suicide.
