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.
