Find a training partner that suits your requirements

Gatekeeper Training is designed to teach individuals who have regular contact with others in their community (i.e. “gatekeepers”) to recognise and respond to people at potential risk of suicide, to support those who are bereaved by suicide or those who have lived experience.

Participating in a Gatekeeper Training program may be difficult or upsetting if you have recently lost someone to suicide. Lifeline South Coast recommends you wait six months before undertaking a suicide awareness course, but acknowledges each individual’s needs.

If you have lost someone to suicide in the last six months, this may not be the best time for you to do suicide prevention training. If you click NO below, you will be directed to some information which may help you further. Please remember Lifeline is available 24/7 on 13 11 14.

Lifeline South Coast acknowledges the financial and other support from COORDINARE – South Eastern NSW PHN under the Primary Health Networks Program – an Australian Government initiative.
