Overview

Wesley LifeForce training equips participants with a variety of skills such as managing suicidal crisis, understanding risk and protective factors, as well as how to recognise potential warning signs. They offer both full-day workshops and half-day seminars. These programs are aimed at training individuals from all walks of life, as well as organisational groups. The workshop will target members of the community who may have a gatekeeper role, for example group leaders, teachers, sports coaches etc, to assist them and recognise and help someone who may be at risk.

Community information resources

Wesley LifeForce has developed 'community information cards' and 'community information posters.' Every workshop participant receives a community information card which includes national 24-hour crisis numbers and information about local community services/resources.

All workshop material is vetted by MindFrame - an Australian Government body which provides expert advice to the Suicide Prevention Sector on responsible reporting /portrayal of the issue of suicide.
