Tweed-Byron Suicide Prevention Program – News

safeTALK training well attended

Earlier this year more than 20 people from the Tweed Shire gathered together at the Murwillumbah Community Centre to participate in safeTALK training.  Participants came to learn how to prevent suicide by recognising signs, engaging someone in conversation and connecting them to support.

Participants gave very positive feedback which reflected a genuine commitment in wanting to make a difference and feeling more confident about the ways they can provide support.

safeTALK is one of many activities The Family Centre have been hosting as part of the Tweed Byron Suicide Prevention Strategy, made possible with funding from North Coast Primary Health Network.
