Event description

Description

How to do we create a supportive, non-judgmental space for young people to talk about suicide? How do we acknowledge the complex issues that young people face around gender, sexuality, social pressures, bullying, and abuse and how these can relate to suicide? What is the value in peer-support and how we utilise it in physical and online spaces? Special guests from the Western Massachusetts Learning Recovery Centre are here to answer these questions and more at this unique youth focused event.

YACWA, in partnership with MercyCare and Youth Mental Health, North Metropolitan Health Service of WA, will host a half-day forum open to young people, youth workers, school staff, social service providers, government and non-government health service providers and all those interested in supporting young people.

***An interactive afternoon session will follow, exclusively for young people (aged 12 to 25) to share their voices.***

Venue is wheelchair accessible. Interpreters available on request. Gender neutral bathrooms on premises.
