Oftentimes there are subtle signs that someone is struggling with life and when these feelings become unbearable, they may start thinking that suicide is their only option.

This half-day CALM C-A-R-E program teaches you how to be suicide aware and recognise when someone may be thinking about ending their life. This workshop will help you recognise the subtle warning signs that are often missed or overlooked, how to approach them, make a connection and know what to say. Above all it will equip you to confidently put your hand up when someone is signalling that they need care. This is an evidence, and lived experience informed program.
