During May a team of us from Youth in Transition partnered with Shared Vision to host the Safe Talk event. This truly practical seminar provided attendees with the skills of how to communicate around sensitive issues and to provide practical help to others. The workshop was presented by Caroline Wilson who is experienced in tackling mental well-being and in conjunction with LivingWorks, a world leader in providing, proven, high quality programmes in suicide prevention. The seminar gave us practical tools to helping people in our community by becoming suicide alert. Some of the life changing topics included
· Recognising the warning signs
· Exploring the struggle
· Knowing how to ask the right questions
· Knowing where to go for help
It was tremendous to partner on this event at the HBC Youth Centre as we together create a suicide-safer community.
