    Suicide safeTALK training with Rev Lance Lukin

    10am - 2pmSt Hilda's Anglican Church, 35 Cruickshank Road, Upper Hutt

    Rev Lance Lukin is to facilitate a suicide safeTALK training session for LivingWorks, an international suicide intervention organisation; in Upper Hutt.  There are two sessions available: this one in June, and a following one in July.

    New Zealand’s suicide rate continues to rise, and our youth suicide rates are some of the highest in the developed world.  Yet, ‘suicide’ is a word like cancer. We don’t like to say it, and talking about it makes us uncomfortable.  safeTALK provides training in how to talk about suicide safely and appropriately, in hopes of making suicide-safer communities.  This training is aimed at anyone who is keen to make a difference.

    Cost $75

    For more information or to make a booking, contact Lance on 022 620 2440.
