All Roses in the Ocean capacity-building workshops are lived experience informed, designed and delivered by professional facilitators who also have a personal lived experience of suicide.

The program includes insight into suicide through the lens of those who have experienced it, introducing participants to a different way of thinking about suicide and how they can best include the voices of Lived Experience when planning and implementing Suicide Prevention services.

The workshop is interactive and guides participants through a process of considering how they can plan and create a process where lived experience insights are valued and embedded at every step of program/service design.

The workshop is also a foundational entry point for organisations embarking on the design of suicide prevention programs or services to ensure they include all of the voices to uncover and meet the needs of their community.

  • Understand what a lived experience of suicide is
