Tracy McCown (Manager, Lived Experience Network) and Tracey Gale (Lived Experience Network member and trained speaker) co-facilitated the 2-day workshop.
“We felt incredibly honoured to have been invited to deliver the workshop to this amazing group of people. Throughout the 2-day workshop the participants worked with each other to learn more about suicide, the prevention of suicide and their purpose for wanting to share their story.
At the conclusion of the workshop each individual courageously shared their story with passion, sometimes humour and a strong message for the community. Their stories do much more than raise awareness of suicide. Delivered to community groups and organisations, they provide messages of hope and practical ways to prevent suicide.“
