On World Suicide Prevention Day 2018 the theme was working together, so OLLIE through a community meeting to talk about how anyone can get involved with suicide prevention. We had a brilliant turn out, three different speakers and everyone signed their interest up for training.
Verity Bramwell, our operations manager, talked about her personal experiences of suicide from a trauma point of view, Mia Arundel spoke about her experiences of mental illness and Debi Roberts introduced a new goalsetting workshop
We offered those attending free places on our safeTALK, and free places on a pilot of a new workshop focused on goalsetting. Based on the interest sheets we successfully ran two pilots of the goalsetting. We received fantastic feedback and will be introducing this to OLLIE’s training in the near future.
