Welcome to Season Two of the LivingWorks podcast, A World Where LivingWorks.
In this series we talk with people from different communities and cultures around the world to try to better understand the concept of suicide and its prevention in their context.
We’re discussing some big stuff that doesn’t have easy answers.
We discuss everything from modern masculinity to galvanizing faith groups. We look at the challenges of walking in two worlds as First Nations People...refugee and migrant families who call two countries home...and how to create safe spaces for LGBTIQ communities.
In each episode we’ll discuss the nuances of language when it comes to suicide. How do you prevent suicide when the word itself isn’t used in some countries and cultures? When lives have been lost to suicide, how do different cultures process grief and loss?
We talk with people about taking positive action in their community. How have they engaged decision makers, local people with influence, and everyday people in suicide first aid?
Every community and culture is different. But suicide and its prevention is something we all have in common. Series two coming soon! Check here.
