Seasons for Life - Supplementary Session

The peer support aspect of the program has been wonderful.


This 2-hour (suicide focused) ONLINE workshop FOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS ONLY has been designed to build the knowledge and capacity of trained Companions when running Seasons for Growth groups with young people who have experienced a loss by suicide. This workshop is offered under the Seasons for Life initiative funded under the National Suicide Prevention Leadership Support Program by the Dept of Health and Aged Care. Additional implementation support will be provided by the Seasons for Life State Coordinator.
Please note: This session is part of the Seasons for Life initiative and as such participants are invited to participate in an external evaluation and Principal endorsment is required. If you have not done so already, please contact your Seasons for Life Coordinator to discuss.
