Lived Experience Capacity Building Programs
We are focused on building a confident, trained and supported Lived Experience “Workforce” with the expertise and skills needed to bring the lived experience as a voice of change in all aspects of suicide prevention.
We do this through offering a range of capacity building workshops and training opportunities for people with a lived experience of suicide. All of our workshops and programs are designed to empower people to engage meaningfully in suicide prevention activity in their local communities and on Lived Experience Reference Groups, in ways that are relevant to their expertise and desired level of involvement.
In order to leverage the skills, capabilities and expertise of people with a lived experience of suicide, we first must ensure that these people are ready to be involved, are safe and supported, are trained in appropriate messaging and language, and possess current and accurate suicide and suicide prevention knowledge.
Interested people register (online) their desire to participate which is followed by a phone consultation to provide more detailed information and ascertain their readiness to be involved.
