This group will meet weekly starting on October 26th, 2021.
Note that attendees at in-person groups will be required to adhere to the current COVID restrictions in NSW, by checking in and showing their vaccinations certificate. Everyone is welcome to join Alternatives to Suicide online groups.
Like everyone, we are looking forward to a time when we can safely welcome everyone to gatherings. Going ahead with the group was a tough decision to make knowing that some people will not be able to join us under the current Covid restrictions.
Until further notice, to attend the Braidwood group, you will need to:-
– show a co-facilitator your Proof of Vaccination Certificate.
– Sign in (QR code or paper sign-in)
– Wear a mask indoors OR provide evidence of mask exemption.
Masks and hand sanitiser will be provided.
If you can’t join us at this stage, please know we are thinking of you! Online Alternatives to Suicide may be an option for you. For meeting times and links go to https://alt2su-nsw.net/support-groups/
The possibility of having to turn away someone who is struggling will be heartbreaking for everyone involved. We will navigate that nightmarish scenario as warmly and compassionately as we possibly can. We have chosen to accept the discomfort and additional work of managing this rather than deny folks who are able to join us the opportunity to meet in person. We ask for your understanding and hope you can trust our intentions.
Alternatives to Suicide peer support groups are open to people 18+ with experience of suicidal distress.
