About this event

Parents and community members who support young people are invited to this FREE event to discuss the ‘hard to talk about’ topics of death, suicide and mental health.

Hard Talk Helps is a facilitated discussion with Laurissa Knowles, a passionate local experienced grief counsellor, psychologist and educator supported by Jacquie Tarrant, the Suicide Postvention Coordinator for St John of God South West Community.

At the first event we aim to support you with;

• How to talk safely about suicide with children,

• Practical tips to support children bereaved by suicide from early childhood to teens,

• How to support children through grief,

• Strategies to support young people in processing grief,

• How to identify when you need more help,

• Local resources and support agencies in the Augusta Margaret River region.

 

Hard Talk Helps is a collaborative project between Mindful Margaret River, Augusta Margaret River YouthCARE Chaplains, the Shire of Augusta Margaret River and St John of God SW and supported by the HEART.
