Let’s Talk Suicide
A virtual camp to help kids heal after a suicide
Support Children following a Suicide
Let’s Talk Suicide is our virtual suicidal grief program. This program focuses on the specific needs of kids grieving the death of a parent and/or sibling due to suicide, including the heightened emotions of guilt, shame and blame. It has been collaboratively designed with clinical psychologists and those with lived experience of suicidal grief.
We aim to empower children with coping skills and tools to understand and manage their grief, which will build their resilience. Children will also find different ways to share their grief story in a healthy way with other kids in the program, inviting them to talk more openly, reducing the pain they are experiencing.
Let’s Talk Suicide has been created as a collaboration to ensure that the program is as impactful as possible. Our partners include the NSW Ministry of Health who support this program as part of their ‘Towards Zero Suicides’ initiative, The Suicide Prevention Collaborative, Roses in the Ocean and the University of Melbourne.
