Thanks to the successful funding through the Mental Health Commisson, Suicide Prevention Grants, Pingelly residents aged 15 and over are invited to a FREE safeTALK evening on Tuesday 14 August 2018.
safeTALK helps participants become alert to suicide. Suicide-alert people are better prepared to connect persons with thoughts of suicide with life-affirming help. Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t want to die—instead, they are looking for a way to work through the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they usually invite others to help them in making a choice for life.
safeTALK teaches participants to recognize these invitations, engage with the person with thoughts of suicide, and connect them with resources to help them be safer from suicide.
Light snacks & refreshments will be provided on the evening. More info below. - Draker
