WHO WE ARE:

USC's Alliance for Suicide Prevention - Sunshine Coast strives to create a connected community to improve mental wellbeing and resiliency to suicidality and its precursors.

We exist because suicide rates in Australia are too high.

To address this, we're implementing the EAAD model, shown to have reduced suicide rates by 24 per cent within two years. A big part of this is 'gatekeeper' training like this safeTALK workshop.

By attending this workshop to become suicide-alert, you're joining a growing network of Sunshine Coast residents, businesses and organisations committed to playing their part to make our community safer from suicide.

The Alliance is an initiative of USC's Thompson Institute, a hub for world-leading mental and brain health research and clinical services on the Sunshine Coast.

COST: Free (value $120)
