Uniting ReGen will be facilitating this free accredited workshop which provides attendees with the skills and knowledge of how to best support someone who is having thoughts of suicide.

Suicide prevention training

Informed by the latest research in suicide prevention, Wesley LifeForce training equips participants with a variety of skills such as managing suicidal crisis, understanding risk and protective factors, as well as how to recognise potential warning signs. We offer both full-day workshops and half-day seminars. Our programs are aimed at training individuals from all walks of life, as well as organisational groups.

The training

Wesley LifeForce has developed quality suicide prevention training. Our Suicide Prevention Workshop is designed to teach people how to identify the signs that someone may be at risk of suicide and appropriate action to take. All Wesley LifeForce facilitators are accredited trainers and have completed suicide intervention training.
