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.

Living Perspectives of Suicide is a half or full day suicide awareness and intervention workshop. The workshop explores the complexity of suicide, the differing beliefs about suicide, and practical guidelines for engaging in the necessary difficult conversations.
