Suicide Prevention Workshop

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Thu 9 Jun ’16, 9:30am – 12:30pm


Centennial Park, Totara St, Marton



Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission

The workshop is available for anyone and everyone, helping to support our community to identify and support people that may be at risk of suicide. The workshops are delivered in such a way that they are beneficial for people to support their friends, family, colleagues and clients. This is a conversation that needs to be had openly in our community.

“Annette Beautrais is Adjunct Professor at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, and Suicide Prevention Co-ordinator at the South Canterbury DHB. She has worked in suicide research and prevention in New Zealand, and internationally, since 1991. While her work has covered many aspects of suicide prevention, she currently focuses on translating suicide research to effective intervention and prevention programmes, systems-based approaches to suicide prevention, suicide prevention in rural regions, workplace and gatekeeper training in suicide prevention, suicide prevention in men, and longitudinal studies of suicidal behaviour.

Dr Beautrais will deliver a 3-hour programme designed to equip participants with the practical knowledge, skills and confidence to recognise people at risk of suicidal behaviour and to refer them to appropriate resources. The programme is based on the well-evaluated, widely used and internationally recognised safeTalk programme. All participants receive a safeTalk training certificate."

Many thanks to Te Kotuku Hauora, James Cook School, Holly Farm, Marton Rotary and the Marton Community Committee for supporting this project.
