What’s an easy way to support 200 community members to receive free suicide alertness training? Vote for us in the Ergon Energy Energex Community Fund People’s Choice!
We seek your vote for The Alliance for Suicide Prevention – Sunshine Coast to receive $5000 to train more everyday heroes to recognise the often-subtle signs that a person might be considering suicide and how to connect them to help.
The Alliance has already secured $5000 from the fund, but the people’s choice vote would double that amount.
The free online suicide alertness training, developed by LivingWorks Australia, is in high demand by the Sunshine Coast community – 300 free licenses were recently ‘sold out’ in just over one week.
The community training also supports The Alliance’s important research into the long-term effectiveness of ‘gatekeeper’ training (which is the training of community members to be suicide alert).
