This workshop will be co-produced in partnership with the Mersey Care Suicide Prevention Team. It will be an opportunity to hear about solutions and paths to start to raise awareness for the devastating impact suicide has on families, and society. Some examples of discussion areas include:
• How to recognise when someone may be suffering
• How to encourage people to seek support
• How to guide them to the correct support
• Most importantly, how to offer hope
This will be a very sensitive topic for plenty of students, and we would implore anyone who thinks this is something they can learn from, to come along. As a matter of fact, we can all learn from this and anything we gain from it may come in to be crucial at any point in our lives.
When: Wednesday, 10 March, 6-8pm
