Off The Wall invites you to
Alternatives to Suicide Inner West Launch
Date: 24/10/2018, 2-5 pm
Location: Marrickville Town Hall, 303 Marrickville Rd, Marrickville.
We warmly invite you to the launch of the first Alternatives to Suicide group in Sydney’s Inner West.
Come learn, connect, celebrate and Share The Journey with us!
Alternatives to Suicide approach is a peer-based response to supporting people who have made suicidal attempts or who experience suicidal thoughts. It was developed in 2008 by the Western Massachusetts Recovery Learning Community (USA). This peer-to-peer practice consists of weekly held mutual support groups which provide a space for voicing, sitting with, understanding and moving through suicidal thoughts… A welcoming and safe(r) space where conversations are held that otherwise rarely happen.
Now the Alternatives to Suicide model has arrived in Australia…
We invite you to a morning of meeting, listening, sharing and learning what the the Alternatives to Suicide model is about and how the first groups will take shape in Sydney from November 2018 onwards.
The event will include the following:
• An overview of the Alternatives to Suicide philosophy and model as well as an opportunity to both hear from and share in, the creativity of people in our community.
• Ample space to ask questions and join conversations.
