LivingWorks Start - Free suicide prevention training for SA bushfire affected communities
Free suicide prevention training is being made available to South Australian communities left reeling
from the 2019/2020 bushfires.
Residents of the Yorke Peninsula, Kangaroo Island, the Adelaide Hills and the Keilira region can now
access an online program run by suicide intervention training provider LivingWorks, thanks to
funding from Country SA PHN.
The LivingWorks Start program prepares people with the skills to recognise when someone is having
thoughts of suicide and, importantly, how to respond to keep them safe.
“Recovery efforts in our bushfire affected communities are still very much underway following the
devastating December bushfires,” Country SA PHN CEO Kim Hosking said.
“Those efforts are being made even more challenging by COVID-19 and we want to make sure there
is as much support as possible for these communities.
