- PROMOTE your organisation or event or distribute Local Suicide Prevention Cards
If you are having an event why not have Region Suicide Prevention Cards promote it and let everyone know about resources and positive local activities. If needed we will do our best to source a sponsor to get the cards produced.
- FUND or BECOME a Livingworks suicide-prevention presenter
Only a handful of suicide-prevention trainers exist in the Mackay Region and as a community we desperately need more. The cost to become a Livingworks safeTALK presenter is $1000 plus travel expenses. To qualify as a Livingworks ASIST presenter the cost is $3500 plus travel. If you would like to undertake the training or know more please contact Grapevine Group. If you would like to FUND us click here.
- Have a GRAPEVINE FUNDRAISER or organise a GRAPEVINE EVENT
If you are holding any sort of event, an art exhibition or gig we would love to be your beneficiary. It is an excellent way to build awareness for suicide resources and contribute to helping us make Mackay suicide-safer. A gold coin donation at the door could help us make a difference.
We solely rely on volunteers, community support and are available to speak to your club or organisation
