StandBy Response Service

The StandBy Response Service is a community-based postvention program delivered by Northern Rivers Social Development Council providing 24-hour response to friends, families, associates and communities bereaved by suicide. Suicide is a time of immense crisis and the tragedy of suicide loss can create trauma, deeply affecting individuals, families and entire communities. In many cases those bereaved do not know where to turn for help or how to find supports that may already exist. The Standby Response Service provides a reliable single point of service coordination and contact, offering respect, understanding and support for the health and well being of people bereaved by suicide, Call 0417 119298 - 24 hours 7 days per week

Description

To register please follow this link to our new Online Registration Program:

Aboriginal Cross Cultural Training has been revised for 2012 and is designed to help individuals and organisations work more effectively with aboriginal people rather that just raise awareness. With Aboriginal Cross Cultural Training our goal is to help participants move beyond basic Aboriginal awareness and appreciation to practical skills and tools that can be applied everywhere. This course provides greater scope for addressing some of the solutions to the problems faced by many Aboriginal people, and opportunities for participant’s questions and concerns to be addressed. Our aim is to leave participants with a positive and long lasting awareness of these issues. The experience focuses on participatory interactions in a relaxed and comfortable learning environment; respectful of individuals and Aboriginal culture.
Course summary:

  • Traditional Aboriginal society
  • Kinship
  • Dreaming
  • obligations
  • Traditional systems of law
  • Historical influences
