The annual LiFE Awards receive nominations from across Australia, and we are amazed with the quality of nominations, showcasing the diverse, innovative, and exciting range of work being undertaken in suicide prevention. The LiFE Awards celebrate the commitment and determination of those working towards the reduction of suicide within our communities. The winners for each category will be announced on World Suicide Prevention Day, September 10, 2020.
Formerly CEO of Lifeline Harbour to Hawkesbury, Lindy has delivered more than 400 ASIST workshops, 100 ASIST Train the Trainer (T4T) programs, and more than 100 safeTALK workshops, as well as training 600 safeTALK trainers. She is one of the most experienced suicide intervention skills trainers in the world, having introduced gatekeeper training across the Asia Pacific including Australia, Singapore, Korea, Hong Kong, and now a pilot in China.
Congratulations Lindy, you are a much valued local and global LivingWorks leader and mentor. Thank you for your continuous contribution and dedication to saving lives!
We’d also like to congratulate LivingWorks’ client nominated in the Workplace category, St John of God Community Alcohol and Drug Service (Southwest): Southwest Community Alcohol and Drug Service (CADS), and our talented team working with them to develop internal and external capacity for suicide prevention within the Southwest WA region. Southwest CADS has implemented an Australia-first process of embedding the suicide intervention skills training they provide for all staff into the clinical practice framework and safety planning of clients. This involved development of policy and procedures around suicide safety, and the sharing of this framework with other organisations and partners.Well done Simone Dayer and the team!
