Community Workshops and Events

Suicide Prevention Training

Suicide is the leading cause of death for Australians between the ages of 15 and 44. We are taking a community-wide approach to suicide prevention in our region, which includes supporting various free training opportunities in suicide prevention for health professionals and the community.  

These activities are part of the Australian government’s Targeted Regional Initiatives for Suicide Prevention.

Visit the Suicide Prevention Training page for current and upcoming training.

Creating Compassionate Communities

We are hosting a community event for older people and organisations who offer services for older people in the Blue Mountains. You will hear from experts and those involved in local initiatives that have made a difference in our communities.

Participants will learn what supports are available and who may benefit in your community from this approach. If you are interested in being involved in our Compassionate Community we invite you to our upcoming event.
