You are invited to a FREE two hour workshop on how to respond to people with thoughts of suicide. The workshop is presented and led by Emma Burns who is a registered psychologist with the NZ Police.
This workshop is for the general public and anyone else such as front line or mental health staff.
What you will learn. This simple, practical approach has proven successful internationally, helping with addictions, offending, high performance sport, trauma debriefing and recovery, and organisational management, as well as suicide prevention. It is an approach that can be used not only by professional, but also by the general public.
This two hour session will provide participants with tools that they can use as soon as they walk out the door.
Follow up support will be available for anyone who is interested in learning more about the approach and its application.
