We are delighted that 5 of our Club members took part in the new HSE online introductory Suicide Prevention Training programme with Living Works Start .
This is an interactive programme and can be completed in between sixty (60) to ninety (90) minutes.
START will enable participants to recognise someone’s thoughts of suicide and take action to ensure they receive help. It will help our members to become more comfortable talking about suicide,be able to support friends and co-workers and to have the peace of mind knowing that they are ready to help.
Malahide Lions plan to broaden and deepen our connection with local primary and secondary schools and we feel that awareness building in this area is hugely important, made all the more so by Covid-19.
