Invitation for the general public: Lived Experience Session and Reflection Ceremony

10 July 2017

​Resilience seems to be a buzz word at the moment, but how do we frame resilience in relation to the depth and complexity of the pain and suffering associated with suicide?

Learning through stories, we’ll hear how an individual has moved from the most challenging times in his life to living a focused and engaged life today. This will be followed by a small panel discussion and a Q & A session with the audience.

Reflection Ceremony

The Reflection Ceremony is an opportunity to participate in a reflection activity as we consider the resilience stories from the previous session and we reflect on the past, present and future.
