Lend your voice to suicide prevention in your Western Sydney Community

Our Voice in Action – a capacity building workshop facilitated by Roses in the Ocean

Many people within our communities have a lived experience of suicide, be that through having experienced suicidal thoughts; survived a suicide attempt; cared for someone through suicidal crisis; or being bereaved through suicide.

Your voice, insight and wisdom is critically important to guide suicide prevention activity in your local region and will help enrich the work by Western Sydney LHD.

An opportunity now exists for you to participate in a lived experience designed and delivered capacity building workshop facilitated by Roses in the Ocean.

Following the workshop you will have the opportunity to engage in paid work with Western Sydney LHD to participate in the co-design of two new suicide prevention initiatives and other ongoing opportunities, including paid participation in various working groups.

‘Our Voice in Action’ is a workshop for people with a lived experience of suicide who are ready and keen to explore opportunities to be involved in suicide prevention activities. It is for people who believe they are ready to use their lived experience to help others and inform future direction for suicide prevention.
