About the Event
Informed by the latest research in suicide prevention, Wesley LifeForce has developed a comprehensive suite of suicide prevention training. This training equips participants with the knowledge and skills to raise awareness of suicide in Australia, recognise signs of individuals at risk, and take appropriate action. Effective interventions can make a real difference and save lives. The programs are designed to train individuals from all walks of life, as well as organisational groups.

Participants will have increased confidence in their ability to identify people who may be at risk of suicide, communicate effectively with a person in crisis, ask a person if they are considering suicide and conduct a suicide intervention.
Training will help you to:
- understand risk and protective factors
- how to identify the warning signs that someone may be at risk of suicide
- how to ask directly about suicide intent
- understand what local and national support and resources are available to support a person at risk
The workshop will be delivered by Wesley LifeForce in partnership with the City of Mandurah.
