About the event

Without the stigma, dramatisation and fuss. Let's enjoy learning practical, no-nonsense skills that help save lives.

The Conversations about Suicide course teaches participants how to provide initial support to someone who may be experiencing suicidal thoughts and behaviours until professional help is received or the crisis resolves.

Course participants learn how to recognise and respond to suicidal thoughts and behaviours, provide support and encourage pathways to professional help.

Using a practical, evidence-based action plan, participants learn how to approach someone they are concerned about and initiate a conversation about those concerns. Participants also learn how to offer initial support and information and how to encourage the person to seek professional help or other support.

This course is recognised by Suicide Prevention Australia as a safe, high-quality, and effective suicide prevention program. Learn more about the program here.

Delivered by our Director, Alena Farrugia, who is also National Consultant Trainer of Youth, Standard and Teen Programs at Mental Health First Aid, you're in experienced hands.
