There are many suicide bereavement support groups on the Sunshine Coast for adults although none for youth, we, Samantha Harrison (18yo), myself Cassie Harrison (16yo) and the Sunshine Coast Suicide Prevention Network have recently organised a support group on the Sunshine Coast for youth called "Head High".
This group is only for people who have already lost a loved one to suicide. Its aim is to provide a place for youth to be able to express their feelings in an open environment without being embarrassed/shy by the presence of their parents for example. There is an info sheet attached for your reference although any other information you need can be obtained from myself at this email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) or on 0754790802 / 0407631532.
Meets last Thursday every month 4.30 p.m. - 6.30 p.m.
Maroochy Neighbourhood Centre
Cotton Tree QLD 4558
Upcoming meeting dates:
December 18th (due to the last Thursday of the month being Christmas Day)
Could you place the info sheet attached as a link to your website and inform as many organisations like yourself of our group? If you could this would be greatly appreciated, as we would like as many young people in the area as possible to be aware of the group and know that there is help out there. Also, people in other areas would be able to contact us in regard to setting up their own support system.
One suicide is one too many and the support provided could prevent these tragedies from occurring in the future.
