Seeking Suicide Support in our Regional Areas
Conversations around suicide are difficult discussions to have, particularly within our regional areas, where an incidence of suicide can have a ripple effect on the entire community.
However, talking about suicide is the best way to reduce the stigma surrounding it, according to Vanessa from Stamp Out Suicide (SOS) Yorkes, a local Yorke Peninsula group aiming to build a resilient community free of suicide.
Vanessa spoke to the Country Viewpoint today for more information on how to talk about suicide, what can be done to build a resilient community, and to discuss upcoming safeTALK workshops along Flow's Yorke Peninsula region.
