Suicide Prevention Workshops
Mass-marketing approaches in micro-community settings are often costly, cumbersome and ineffective in engaging community members in genuine dialogue. The use of co-creative and participatory methods can generate opportunities for deeper interaction, greater community ownership and improved cross-cultural messages.
Collaborative poster workshops have been utilized on several university campuses, and dozens of secondary schools to help spark community dialogue, peer-to-peer advocacy, and raise awareness to resources.
The workshops have proven to increase participant awareness of mental health resources, increase the likelihood of peer-to-peer discussion, and increase the likelihood of student referral to mental health resources.
