We’d like to thank our longest serving safeTALK Trainer, Edie Weiss, for reaching this important milestone. What an incredible achievement!


Edie has personally trained over 3600 people in the Mackay region in suicide prevention training with 1457 locals specifically in LivingWorks safeTALK.

Edie works tirelessly for suicide prevention in our community. Aside from volunteering as a Grapevine trainer, Edie assists to coordinate any private safeTALKs we deliver and spends the rest of her time volunteering for Lifeline on their Crisis Line.

After a long career as a School Counsellor, Edie has recently retired from St Patrick’s Senior College. She is qualified as both a safeTALK and LivingWorks ASIST Trainer and has been presenting safeTALK since 2009.
