Out of the Shadows

 

Out of the Shadows Walks unite people and communities who have been impacted by the death of a loved one through suicide.

Community Connections Roadshow

From February to March 2023, Lifeline South Coast will launch the Community Connections Roadshow to shine a light on mental health and raise awareness of suicide prevention for the people of the Sapphire Coast from Bermagui in the north, to Eden in the south. The events taking place throughout the roadshow aim to commemorate those lost to suicide and support our communities to be suicide-safe through connection, compassion and hope.

Following years of devastation from bushfires, floods and Covid-19, there has never been a more vital time to bring the Sapphire Coast communities together to show there is support available. During the roadshow, Lifeline South Coast will travel to Bermagui, Bega and Eden to walk with locals at sunrise, and share moments of connection through a workshop and training day.

Locals are encouraged to join to connect with each other’s experiences, raise awareness, generate hope, and commit to preventing further deaths by suicide. By walking into the (sun) light, walkers symbolically reduce the shame experienced by so many people struggling with suicidality as well as those bereaved by the suicide death of a loved one.

Community Connections Day

Join us on Thursday 16 March as we unite as one in Bega for a full day Community Connections event, with participants able to take part in a Wellbeing and Resilience Workshop or Psychological First Aid Training. There will be a shared lunch break to foster discussion and connection between the two groups.  The event will close with an hour-long panel discussion featuring local service providers and mental health workers. This Community Connections Day is free to attend, with lunch provided, as well as childcare for those in need. Childcare places are limited – if you would like to utilise this service, please reach out to training@llsc.org.au by 15 January 2023.
