Suicide Prevention Forum

 

It can be difficult knowing what to say or do when a loved one or friend is severely distressed, self-harming or suicidal. At times, it may be hard to recognise distress, as it may be hidden behind withdrawal, irritability or risky behaviour. This forum aims to provide usable information about distress leading to self-harm or suicidality.

 

The forum will be suitable for those in the community who would like to know how to support their loved ones and learning about preventing self-harm and suicide, and when and how to access professional support. The act of supporting loved ones can be overwhelming and lonely. We will cover the importance of taking care of yourself so that you are able to provide needed support.

 

Date: Thursday 17th September

Time: 9:30am - 11:30am.
