Help the Collaborative spread the word about suicide prevention
The Illawarra Shoalhaven Suicide Prevention Collaborative (the Collaborative) has recently published a new 'Spread the word' webpage with information about current suicide prevention awareness campaigns.
The page features videos and resources for people who might be experiencing suicidal thoughts, as well as their friends, family and community members more broadly. Two videos have been launched so far:
- Start a conversation - featuring Alanna Hector, Mental Health Project Coordinator at COORDINARE.
- Recovery is possible - featuring Steve Gibbeson, Program Manager at Illawarra Shoalhaven HealthPathways.
The Collaborative is encouraging health professionals to help spread the word that:
- starting a conversation about suicide can reduce suicide risk
- recovery is possible from suicidal thoughts or attempts.
Please like and share the videos and resources on Facebook and Twitter! Some examples of social media posts are included on the page.
