The free four-hour Touchpoints Workshop is designed specifically to give community members an insight into suicide through the lens of lived experience and equip them with the right knowledge and practical tools to reduce others’ emotional pain. On completion of this workshop, you can expect to have attained a deeper understanding and appreciation of the complexity of suicide, increased confidence and capacity to engage with people in crises, debunked commonly held suicide myths with facts and more.

The workshop is especially useful for those who have regular community contacts, like hairdressers, baristas, taxi drivers, sports coaches, newsagents and pharmacy staff. It can also assist those in the workforce who have regular contact with staff, for example, receptionists and Human Resources staff. These types of community members are often ‘Touchpoints’ for people to seek and receive help, so developing capacity to support others can save lives.
