Waikato DHB employs a suicide prevention and postvention coordinator to help with the implementation of the Suicide Prevention and Postvention Action plan for the Waikato community.
Waikato DHB recognises that there are already a lot people and organisations working with passion to support those affected by depression, suicide and suicidal thoughts. We want to share information about these services so that everyone will know where to go to get the right support for them and their situation. We will also share information about any upcoming training opportunities that will be held in the region that can show us all how to recognise the warning signs of someone becoming seriously depressed and what any of us can do to help them.
We really want to make things as easy as possible for everyone in our community to know help is readily available and how that support can be accessed.
If you have any information or links to peer-reviewed literature that you would like shared, please email the coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that this email contact is not suitable for seeking clinical support or referral to services.
