SuicideTalk is a 90 minute suicide awareness session that helps participants understand the issue of suicide and how they can help prevent it in their communities.
Tuesday 19th November
Budleigh Health & Wellbeing Hub, East Budleigh Road, EX9 6HF
SuicideTALK is a short exploration and awareness raising session which is suitable for anyone aged over 15 years old. It aims to dispel common myths around suicide, including the fear that talking about it promotes suicidal behavior. The session invites all participants—regardless of prior training or experience to become more aware of suicide prevention opportunities in their community and to take the essential first step in creating suicide safer communities. Dealing openly with the stigma around suicide, this exploration focuses upon the question “Should we talk about suicide?” By looking at this question in a number of different ways, session members can discover some of the beliefs and ideas about suicide in their communities—and in themselves.
The session will examine;
• Common myths around suicide
• The latest statistics around suicide
• Explore why communities should talk about suicide
• TALK steps to help understand how someone might be feeling and what you can do to help them
• What is available in the local community.
The sessions are facilitated by Action to Prevent Suicide and are FREE to attend
