The We-Yarn workshops will deliver unique quality training in suicide prevention, with a strong focus on health and well-being for Aboriginal people. 

The interactive workshop helps participants discuss suicide prevention in a safe and friendly environment, builds on Aboriginal understandings of life, the land, family and other key beliefs, and is co-presented by an Aboriginal person – former NRL player Nathan Blacklock who has his own experiences with suicide.

There will be two workshops in Toomelah, one specifically for Aboriginal men and another for women.

The men’s workshop will be held on Wednesday, June 14, while the women’s one will be held on Wednesday, June 28. Lunch will be provided.
