SafeTALK ~ Semester TWO @ Evison Lounge, OUSA Clubs & Societies Centre

safeTALK SUICIDE PREVENTION WORKSHOP: This is a great opportunity to learn invaluable skills that will help you to identify and support a potentially suicidal friend. Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives.

Through their words and actions they are inviting help to stay alive. In this incredibly powerful interactive workshop you will learn to recognise these invitations, or the signs of someone suffering, and the importance of talking directly to your friend. Learn how to ask the right questions and how to listen with empathy, and take positive action by connecting them with lifesaving resources.

The $11.50 charge for this workshop helps cover the cost of producing the printed material used within the workshop.

Life Matters Street Appeal Day @ Dunedin

We are looking for willing volunteers to help us on 10 August.

Funds collected on this day go straight back into our community by providing bereavement support, therapy, suicide prevention workshops and helping people to navigate the mental health system as well as the aftermath of suicide.

Funds raised will also help us run Hope Centre. We are a registered charity CC51541, take no government funding, run on the smell of an oily rag, volunteers doing this work on top of juggling full time jobs, family and life. Help us to help our community. A connected community saves lives.
