South West Hospital and Health Service Indigenous Health Coordinator Rodney Landers says the two Deadly Thinking workshops also would address the issue of suicide prevention.
“Deadly Thinking is a program specifically designed for Indigenous communities. The workshops will confront core social and mental well-being issues in a culturally appropriate, accessible and compelling way.”
Topics covered include yarning, risks to mental health, symptoms of anxiety and depression, drug and alcohol misuse, suicide risk and pathways to help.’
The workshops will be held at:
Roma: 13 September, in the Conference Room at the Nuriyn Wellness Centre, Roma Hospital, McDowall St, from 1 pm to 4 pm.
Mitchell: 14 September, Conference Room, Mitchell Hospital, Ann St, from 10 am to 1 pm.
Both workshops are free.
