As a virtual walk organiser, you have a duty of care to those attending.
Provide access to support
Let people know they can contact Lifeline on 13 11 14 or visit the Lifeline website
See the Suicide prevention & awareness section of the Lifeline website. You can use to find bereavement support services and counselling information.
The themes of this campaign are reflection, recovery, hope and prevention. Start your walk with a welcome reflection. This will give the walk context - that the walk represents steps we can all take to prevent suicide.
Provide space for reflection
Allow people to be reflective, thoughtful and open by creating an opportunity for reflective space.
Your local Lifeline Centre might be able to help you with your walk. A few telephone volunteers may be available to provide emotional support at the walk for attendees who may be distressed.
