MHACA was recently invited by the Larapinta Child & Family Centre to talk to participants of the Strong Young Parents Program. Discussions were held with the group about what signs a person may have if they were experiencing mental distress and were thinking about suicide, what we can do and what help is available.
The group provided some good points and raised some challenges that people face when they are in this situation. MHACA would like to thank staff at the Centre for inviting MHACA to come and talk about this important topic.
