Lismore: How do we prevent suicide?
THE Wesley LifeForce networks team will be hosting a meeting of Lismore community members on Monday April 18 with the aim of forming a suicide prevention network.
Wesley LifeForce works with communities around the country to bring together local individuals and organisations that go on to develop local suicide prevention strategies.
The meeting in Lismore will be the first of its kind and is the result of discussions between Wesley LifeForce and service representatives working in the area of mental health.
Wesley Mission's CEO the Rev Dr Keith V Garner encouraged residents to get involved.
"The aim is to empower people to tackle this difficult issue in a manner best suited to the needs of people living in Lismore," he said.
"Simple effective interventions can make a difference and save lives-and Wesley LifeForce networks can help communities develop local activities that address the issue of suicide."
The meeting will be held at 10am on Monday April 18 at Northern Rivers Social Development Council, 16 Keen Street, Lismore.
