B RIGHT ON LGBT Community Festival: SuicideTALK – Suicide awareness-raising sessions

Besi Besemar February 17, 2018

If you work face to face with members of the LGBT community then SuicideTalk is for you.

A one-hour exploration and awareness-raising session suitable for all individuals and groups within all communities.

If you are concerned about suicide in your community this training can help you talk about one of the most taboo subjects in the world today.

Grassroots Suicide Prevention, LGBT Switchboard, MindOut and the LGBT Community Safety Forum are working together to ensure that those working in the LGBT community are trained in having conversations about suicide.

In just an hours training you will see that it is okay to talk about suicide as well as find out more about the local services that are available to those wanting support. This might be enough to save a life.

If you work in a bar, club, cafe or any other LGBT venue, then take an hour out of your day to attend this workshop. It will run in a very relaxed way and it is your opportunity to find out more as well as ask any questions that you might have.

The B RIGHT ON LGBT Community Festival celebrating LGBT History Month, is organised by the volunteers of the Brighton & Hove LGBT Community Safety Forum and takes place at the Phil Starr Pavilion – a multi functional, fully accessible, heated performance, conference and community space with a licensed bar which is located on Victoria Gardens, Brighton, BN1 1WN.
