“Alternatives to Suicide” Program for Perth

January 9, 2018

MercyCare and the Steering Group for the Alternatives to Suicide roll out for Western Australia are pleased to advise that Facilitator Training and Forums are planned for March 2018 in Perth.

Sera Davidow (CEO) and Caroline Mazel-Carlton (trainer) from Western Massachusetts Recovery Learning Community, Boston, USA, will come to Perth to run facilitator training and conduct other activities in the period 12-23 March 2018.

The 3 Day Facilitator Training will be the key training provided in order to stimulate the growth of Peer Support groups in Perth; a structured process will be undertaken in Jan-Feb 2018 to select training participants. Depending on funding and sponsorship, an additional 2 Day Conversations about Suicide and half-day Myths Surrounding Suicide could be offered to selected other people.

Further information will be available soon. In the meantime, please direct any enquiries or expressions of interest to: alternativesforum@mercycare.com.au
