TIPS FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON

We know the holiday season can be a difficult time for people with a lived experience of suicide. So, we asked our Collective what they do to make it through the holidays and the festive season. Here’s what they came up with. We hope something resonates with you.

SUBMISSIONS CLOSING SOON

We are seeking submissions that offer a glimpse into the pages of your story, to create Reflections of My Lived Experience – a publication that offers a message of strength, tenacity and hope. How has it changed you? What insights and learnings can you share? What advice would you give?

OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE

Preparations are now well underway for the second Lived Experience of Suicide Summit to be held in Melbourne from 13-15 May 2020.

Roses in the Ocean is seeking your input into the workshop program as well as offering a range of flexible partner opportunities.

ROSE IN THE OCEAN HOLIDAY SEASON

The Team at Roses in the Ocean will be taking a well-deserved break over the holiday season. The office will close on Friday 20 December and re-open on Monday 6 January 2020. We wish you all a healthy holiday and a prosperous New Year.

our story

Roses in the Ocean exists to reduce emotional distress and pain, and to save lives.

Roses in the Ocean is building a trained and supported workforce of empowered individuals with personal, lived experiences of suicide.

We know that  individuals who have experienced suicidal thoughts, survived a suicide attempt, cared for loved ones through crisis, or been bereaved through suicide, can provide us with powerful insights and opportunities to inform, influence and enhance suicide prevention activities.

Members of our Lived Experience Collective are actively engaged in communities and organisations that share our vision to reduce emotional distress and pain, and to save lives.

The intrinsic value of individuals with a lived experience of suicide permeates Roses in the Ocean’s research partnerships, capacity-building workshops and consulting expertise.

As Australia’s leading lived experience of suicide organisation, Roses in the Ocean collaborates with individuals and organisations across community, corporate, health and government sectors to effectively and meaningfully engage lived experience expertise with all aspects of suicide prevention.
