Supporting Children and Young People Impacted by Suicide Workshop


Each and every day in Australia more than 8 people die by suicide. On average 135 people are impacted by each suicide. This means that every year over 400,000 Australians are impacted by suicide. Many of those impacted are our children and young people. This number accumulates year upon year. Anyone could be impacted by suicide. Would you feel confident to provide support to someone who had been bereaved or impacted by suicide?

Join us for this free, interactive and engaging workshop delivered by Australia's largest and leading Suicide Postvention service StandBy Support After Suicide. Supporting Children and Young People Impacted by Suicide specifically looks at the needs of younger people when experiencing the impacts of suicide. The workshop addresses experiences of children and young people at different stages of development while looking at grief and trauma; protective factors; resources to assist in supporting children and young people; language and actions to take; and touches on safety plans and actions that should be in place to support the impacted young  person/s and their families. Self care is also explored with attendees.

This workshop is perfect for any professionals or community members who work with or support children and young people. Intended for those aged 18 and above.

Afternoon Tea will be provided.
