A Safe Space To Shelter During Troubled Times

Available: Online every second Thursday evening, Working Towards Zero Suicide. The Shelter is staffed by volunteering clinical and lived experience experts collaboratively. The group was one of the first such alternative to ED options and endured years of training, consultation and networking. The group is led largely by members of the Illawarra-Shoalhaven Suicide Prevention Collaborative (COORDINARE) and provide a welcoming online space or referral to a physical Safe Space operated and advocates for by participating Collaborative members. So all this together amounts to a pretty solid support to assist people experiencing or affected by suicidality and is non-judgemental and non-clinical – equal space – to buy time during a traumatic to suicide crisis or even to put a hand up in need and attend without any expectations other than to keep sound to the spirit of the lived experience non-judgemental approach. Highly recommended for SE-NSW and beyond, though even by making enquiries Shelter can assist. For precise details please consult the information contained on the group’s flyer !!!
