Workshop to help prevent suicides
IN a new initiative to help prevent suicides amongst locals in the area, ECHO Malanda is teaming up with Wellways.org to present free workshops that will help participants recognise the signs.
On 7 June, Jarrah Buckingham from Wellways will deliver free Question, Persuade, and Refer Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention, designed to teach lay and professional “gatekeepers” the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to respond.
Bel Moore from Echo said the workshops were a great opportunity for anyone, “as you never know what someone is going through and how they plan to cope”.
“We at ECHO are excited to host these workshops because it is important for people in all communities to have the capacity to respond to anyone at risk of suicide,” she said.
To book for the workshop, visit the Neighbourhood House Reception Desk or call or call 4096 6634. Workshops are limited to 15 participates each session.
