Passionate Lives has been asked by the WA Primary Health Alliance to help spearhead a new initiative in Kwinana, WA. Kwinana Alliance Against Depression (KAAD) is based on the European Alliance Against Depression which reduced the suicide rates by 24% using a multi layered approach to suicide prevention and mental health awareness.
At Passionate Lives our aim is that everyone in WA has the tools to recognise the signs someone may be feeling suicidal and have the confidence to ask the question and support them in crisis. It’s why we do what we do, But we are aware that many people on low incomes / Centrelink benefits can’t afford the fees we charge so we have rolled out our scholarship programme.
There has been much talk of the new hit series “13 Reasons” glorifying suicide. Mental Health First Aid has issued some talking points you may find useful when discussing the content of the programme with your children.
