CfL is an amazing team. What they do actually saves life. I have seen their passion and dedication, night or day, when they train and when they intervene in situations where all else give up.
The CfL training is amazing. In half a day it makes a ton of a difference…and creates a cycle of ‘pay it forward’.
Keep up the great work Caring for Life team!!!🤗👏👏👏👏
<The workshop> helps me to better understand how to broach the difficult topic of suicide, recognise that bring the issue out in the open is helpful. and to understand the process of supporting someone with suicide ideation.
CFL provided a very genuine and hearfelt training for us to recognized the warning signs of a potential contacts that may succumb to suicide.
Alot of learnings and very real scenarios picked up! A Well-done workshop!👍🏼
Attending the LIFE training with CFL is an eye-opener for me! The dedication of Dr Sally and her team of trainers and volunteers touched the heart of the participants. During the training, we could feel their sincerity in training community carers, so as to build up the capacity of the community and prevent suicide cases together. In the training, we learnt useful acronyms to help us remember what signs and signals to look out for and the steps to care for those who may have suicide intention. Thank you for having such a wonderful curriculum and hope that more people can join us to be trained as a suicide prevention community carer.
