1 day course

The CORES one-day training course provides participants with an introduction to suicide statistics and stigma; suicidal thoughts, behaviours, signs and indicators are explored through supported discussions and interactive exercises; the importance of self-care for mental health and well-being are discussed; and strategies for assessing, understanding and assisting a person considering suicide are practised, with a focus on utilising existing community resources.

This training is designed for all members of the community from 15 years of age and upwards, including individuals, groups, schools and organisations.  The program provides people with a pathway to involvement in suicide prevention and arms them with the skills to be able to take these protective behaviours and practice them in the wider community. All workshops are evaluated on completion and 3 months’ post workshop, and ask participants to share how their knowledge has changed and how they may have used their new knowledge and skills post course.
