Everyone’s lived experience is unique. Everyone’s lived experience is valuable. Everyone’s lived experience matters.
Roses in the Ocean defines lived experience of suicide as “having experienced suicidal thoughts, survived a suicide attempt, cared for someone through a suicidal crisis, and or been bereaved by suicide’
Lived experience is a critical element in the success of an integrated, multilevel, systems approach to suicide prevention. Valuing and working together is key to our work in suicide prevention on the Central Coast.
There is a range of ways people with lived experience of suicide can use their voices to contribute to suicide prevention.
Undertake training to develop specific skills in suicide prevention activities and your lived experience insights.
