CO DESIGN AND START PROJECT

We are developing tools to support the mental health and wellbeing of CJU and SS4C. Are you interested in being involved?

Thanks to funding provided by the Perth Metropolitan Suicide Prevention Coordinators, we have engaged Connection And Wellbeing Australia to work with key CJU and SS4C members to develop the ways in which we can support the mental health and wellbeing needs of our networks.

This will be a 2 stage project and we invite you to register your interest in participating in either or both parts. We are looking for a diverse range of contributions and hold value in all perspectives of our members

START- Suicide Awareness Training

WHAT ARE THE AIMS OF THE PROJECT?

START is an online, self-paced training that teaches you to:

  • Be able to identify when someone may be thinking about suicide
  • To practice talking with them about this in an open and safe way
  • To learn how to connect them with supports that can help keep them safe

HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?

Initially we have 40 free places to attend this training. The training takes 1-2 hours and you will receive a certificate. It is available to people aged 13 or over (13/14 year olds require parent/guardian support to participate).

You will be supported by Connection And Wellbeing Australia during the training process. START is a best practice qualification in suicide prevention, you will not be paid for you time but will be able to attain this valuable skill for free

The expression of interest for START will stay open until all the places have been allocated.

Co-design a mental health and wellbeing processes

WHAT ARE THE AIMS OF THE PROJECT?

To build the capacity of CJU and SS4C to:

  • Be able to respond to and safely support the mental health needs of members, advocates and activists
  • Harness and channel the skills, knowledge and lived experiences of CJU and SS4C members and our wider network
  • Support the inclusion of lived experience perspectives in co-designing a mental health safety framework
  • Support the establishment of healthy mental health and well-being processes within our communities and activism.

HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?

Initially we will engage 6 people to participate in a simple co-design process. This will involve attendance at 3 webinar workshops and discussions/ feedback via email and phone.

You will be paid $40 per hour (workshops will be 1.5-2hrs each) for your contribution (approx $180).

There will be the opportunity for wider contribution on draft versions of our documents and processes by CJU members and SS4C participants. This will be unpaid.

As part of participating in the co design of this project, it may be helpful for you to develop your skills in being able to have safe conversations about suicide.

If you take part in the co-design you will be required to undertake the online suicide prevention training (START training as mentioned above). The expression of interest to take part in the co-design will close on June 30th.

We acknowledge that we begin our work as The Climate Justice Union on the Boodja (land) of the Wadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We honour the Wadjuk people and their kin in other Nations and Country across these lands and waters, who have always cared for this place and all who lived here.

We acknowledge First Nations Elders past and present, and acknowledge that those of us living here, who came from across the seas, live on land that was taken, stolen. We acknowledge the responsibility that comes with this understanding and that we personally and collectively benefit from this theft.

As such, we all have a responsibility to decolonise ourselves, our lives and work, and to heal the harm these oppressive systems have inflicted.
