The Rotary Club of Gladstone-Port Curtis will deliver free safeTALK suicide alertness training sessions across the region, supported by Gladstone Regional Council.
The training sessions will be assisted by Council's allocation this year of a one-off funding grant to benefit the community club's 'Project We Care' initiative.
The initiative aims to prevent suicide by training community members with communication and support skills to identify those at-risk and to avert or lessen the incidents of self-harm and suicide within our community.
safeTALK is a three-hour training session that prepares anyone over the age of 15 to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources.
Several safeTALK sessions have been held across the Gladstone Region this year.
Bookings to attend safeTALK sessions can be made by phoning 4976 6306.
