Evidence-based training programs

We offer mental health and suicide prevention training programs free or at a discounted rate to Sunshine Coast community members and at free or cost price rates for Sunshine Coast workplaces.

We select training that is based on evidence and is suitable for all members of the community to attend. We can all learn skills in identifying the signs that a person is struggling with their mental health or thoughts of suicide and learn how to start a conversation that could change or even save a life.
