Event description
This evidence based, best practice workshop will empower you to help a young person who is self-harming or suicidal.

About this Event

Key learnings:

What is self-harm and why young people do it?

Why sleep deprivation plays a significant role in suicide.

How does a history of trauma and PTSD make someone more vulnerable to suicide and what new treatments are available?

What should professionals look for as a response to Covid-19?

Why are a growing number of young children (ages 5-12) expressing suicidal ideation?

How can you hold someone in the community if services are “full”?

How to support young people if there has been a death by suicide.

Why are so many suicides an instant response to a failure or crisis and how can this be prevented?

Who should attend? Teachers, counsellors, youth and social workers, GPs, nurses, support workers and anyone concerned about suicide in the community.

The workshop will be delivered by Michael Hempseed. Michael Hempseed is the author of the book Being A True Hero: Understanding and Preventing Suicide in Your Community.

Michael has spoken extensively throughout New Zealand to a wide and varied range of audiences, such as New Zealand Defence Force medics, doctors, social workers, businesses and many parents and teachers. In 2019 he delivered almost 200 seminars throughout NZ.

Although he speaks on “dark topics” the participants at his seminars say they walk away feeling inspired and hopeful and they even have a few laughs along the way. Many non-professionals come to his seminars and they say they learn a lot. But, professionals and experts in the field, such as medical doctors, psychologists and counsellors, also say they learn a lot and they are exposed to research they did not know about.

Cancellation policy: In the event of cancellation or a lockdown, the event will be rebooked in person as soon as possible.
