START- Suicide Awareness Training


START is an online, self-paced training that teaches you to:

  • Be able to identify when someone may be thinking about suicide
  • To practice talking with them about this in an open and safe way
  • To learn how to connect them with supports that can help keep them safe


Initially we have 40 free places to attend this training. The training takes 1-2 hours and you will receive a certificate. It is available to people aged 13 or over (13/14 year olds require parent/guardian support to participate).

You will be supported by Connection And Wellbeing Australia during the training process. START is a best practice qualification in suicide prevention, you will not be paid for you time but will be able to attain this valuable skill for free

We acknowledge that we begin our work as The Climate Justice Union on the Boodja (land) of the Wadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We honour the Wadjuk people and their kin in other Nations and Country across these lands and waters, who have always cared for this place and all who lived here.

We acknowledge First Nations Elders past and present, and acknowledge that those of us living here, who came from across the seas, live on land that was taken, stolen. We acknowledge the responsibility that comes with this understanding and that we personally and collectively benefit from this theft.

As such, we all have a responsibility to decolonise ourselves, our lives and work, and to heal the harm these oppressive systems have inflicted.
