About OPEN THE GATE

The Scott River Charity Ball Committee are thrilled and proud to announce the launch of a mental health awareness and suicide prevention program which will directly support the people in the catchments of Scott River, Augusta, Karridale and Nannup.

OPEN THE GATE is a true grass roots project reaching out to support it’s people by giving them the tools to respond positively to mental health.With the generous support and funds raised at the Scott River Charity Ball we are able to implement OPEN THE GATE into our region by hosting the following presentations:

• Mental Health Awareness Community

PresentationsPresented by Laurissa Knowles CMC B.A (Psych.Theol.), Dip.Ed, P.M.A.C.A. 4838, M.C.A.WA A6237, WACOT.Laurissa will be promoting the use of mental health, counselling, alcohol and other drugs services, and reducing stigma and discrimination against people using these services. The presentation will also include information on where people can find support locally. A welcome drink and sausage sizzle will be provided

.• SafeTALK Training

safeTALK is a half-day alertness workshop that prepares anyone over the age of 15, regardless of prior experience or training, to become a suicide-alert helper. Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive. SafeTALK-trained helpers can recognize these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources. Light lunch provided.

OPEN THE GATE is an exciting initiative for our region. The vision and intention is authentic and by being a community driven project together we can make a difference.

TOGETHER we can OPEN THE GATE to conversation.
