Committed to the prevention of suicide.
This Alliance for Suicide Prevention – Sunshine Coast is a group of organisations and individuals who care about combining mental health resources with local connections to meet a real community need. Together we can use our strengths for good.
300 people trained. 100 days.
We’ve set a goal: train 300 more people to be suicide alert between World Suicide Prevention Day and the end of the year.
Ambitious? Yes. But our community is motivated to play their part in creating a suicide-safer Sunshine Coast.
Help us reach our goal and learn how to be alert to suicide-risk. You can complete 90-minute online training. Or attend in-person training: half-day and two-day options available.
Anyone who attends training before 9 December goes in the draw to win one of three $100 vouchers at Bocca, The Recovery Room and Event Cinemas. Terms and conditions apply.
