safeTALK suicide prevention workshop - FULLY BOOKED @ Scouts Regional Office

This event is fully booked – keep watching for more events or contact us to arrange one.

This safeTALK workshop is booked out to Otago Rovers who fundraised for Life Matters. So proud of the Otago Rovers for taking this initiative. Let’s look after one another in a safe way.

safeTALK gives people the knowledge to recognise when someone is struggling with thoughts of suicide. It also gives people the confidence to openly ask the questions that could be lifesaving. It helps them to connect the person with suicidal thoughts to lifesaving resources. We understand that many children are unlikely to tell their parents so friends and trusted adults play a huge role in being that support.

Some feedback from previous participants.
1. I feel a lot more comfortable with the topic of suicide and how to approach the subject. Before the training I was not aware of how common suicidal thoughts are in NZ but now after training I am more aware.
2. I thought it was very helpful and I learnt a lot. It was good to talk about a topic that is often avoided.
3. Great to feel comfortable to talk about suicide and to know how to start the conversation.
