EOI – Suicide Prevention Capacity Building Program
February 16, 2023 - May 18, 2023
Black Dog Institute is delivering a Suicide Prevention Capacity Building Program in the Kingaroy region between February and May 2023.
Funded by the Department of Health, the program consists of 6 evidence-based workshops, which will be guided by the area’s needs and current approaches to suicide prevention.
The intent of this program is to strengthen collaboration, co-ordination, and visibility of these activities. From this, we aim to support the establishment of a community collaborative to implement local suicide prevention activities.
We understand there is a suicide prevention network in the region currently and we encouraged people part of this group to apply. Additionally, we know there are many people who are working hard to reduce the rates of suicide and we are wanting to engage representatives from across the region including the Local Health Network, service providers, health professionals, school counsellors, clinicians, local businesses, volunteer action groups, first nations people, first responders, community members and welcome individuals with a lived experience.
Participation in the program is free, and we ask that you commit to attending all 4 of the 2–3-hour workshops. Workshop dates: 16/2, 16/3, 20/4, 18/5. If you are unavailable at these times, don’t worry as this does not preclude you from joining the broader collaborative once the program is completed.
Spaces are limited so please email your expression of interest to email@example.com by close of business 13/1/2023.
