Equipping Communities: Thriving Lives for Supporters

Today is World Suicide Prevention Day and we just wanted to take a moment to send a wee reminder out about our upcoming Thriving Lives for Supporters Workshop. We think one of the reasons we have such a high rate of suicide is because we don’t have enough tools for talking about or building wellbeing and happiness and the other positive experiences associated with mental health.

Thriving Lives is a worksheet tool to help people understand how they practice mental health in their own lives and what they could add to their picture. Thriving Lives Workshops teach people to use this tool to improve their wellbeing.

Feedback on the Thriving Lives Workshop shows this approach helps people to:

  • feel less alone
  • acknowledge their strengths
  • recharge their sense of hope
  • form new understandings
  • develop practical strategies for improvements

We’ll be running a repeat session on October 11th. More information about that is on our website. It doesn’t stop there though. People need supportive, informed communities to help them on their way. Our next step is about training the wider community to support people to put this approach into action.

Thriving Lives for Supporters equips supporters of all kinds to use this approach in their own lives and with the people they support. Whether you are a family-member of someone who is dealing with stress or mental unwellness, a friend, a colleague or a professional who works in the mental-health sector, this workshop is for you.

You’ll be pleased to know we’ve extended the early-bird enrolment period to September 16th, so there’s a few days left to take advantage of the discounted rate.

Any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch – we’re happy to offer a group discount if there are a few people enrolling together.
