TARGET GROUP

SUMMARY

Our conversational fears related to mental illness support, are normal experiences. Common thoughts are will I make things worse? Will I push the person over the edge? Will I destroy our relationship? On average we speak 20,000 words a day, so understanding that not only can our words change lives but saves lives, particularly in a crisis such as suicidal thoughts and behaviors and NSSI – Non-Suicidal Self Injury. You will take away an increased sense of confidence and know that we all need to get “Comfortable with the Uncomfortable” in supporting clients in this situation

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

  • Understanding and responding to suicidal thoughts and behaviours
  • Understanding and responding to NSSI or Non-Suicidal Self Injury
  • Appreciating the gift of tears
  • Navigating our responses, and conversations of confidence in providing support
  • Supporting ourselves after the fact.

An accomplished conversationalist in mental health education, Jules has an engaging and creative approach in helping communities understand mental illness and how to manage the invisible learning blocks and walls often confronted, in learning expeditions. She takes the myths and fictitious beliefs about mental illness, and weaves participants into developing safe and confident based approaches that can be used in supporting and maximising confidence in “the space” for both teacher and learner.
