A presentation in Noosa will focus on how to empower vulnerable people to imagine a better future, heading off thoughts of suicide.

This FREE presentation titled 'Finding a Way: the Solution Focused Nursing Approach to Suicide Prevention and Intervention' will be held from 6pm-7pm on Wednesday, November 21, at the Noosa Reef Hotel, 19 Noosa Drive, Noosa Heads.

The presenters will be CQUniversity's Professor of Nursing Margaret McAllister and Jill Fisher, the Director of StandBy, a national service for those bereaved by suicide.

Ms Fisher will talk about 'stand by response', the national suicide 'postvention' service that was pioneered in the Noosa area and which is now available Australia wide.
