Anyone can learn how to help: suicide prevention campaign launched to protect regional SA communities.
The transition from working in a hardware store to becoming a suicide prevention support worker
isn’t an obvious one, but for Whyalla resident Anne Evans it’s a change that has provided many
opportunities to make a real difference in her community.
Now she’s taking that commitment even further by featuring in a campaign which is about showing
that anyone can learn how to help a person who might be thinking about taking their own life.
Country SA PHN has launched the campaign to promote QPR, an online suicide prevention training
which is being offered for free to all residents within the National Suicide Prevention Trial region of
Whyalla, Port Lincoln, Port Augusta, Port Pirie, the Yorke Peninsula and the towns in between.
“The intent behind this campaign is to show that anyone can learn important skills which might help
to save a colleague, friend or loved one when they need it most,” Anne said
