Sharing personal experiences can help in healing after bereavement by suicide. Here at WINGS of Hope, our President, Wendy McWilliam and Communications Coordinator, Leigh White, are both professionally trained in speaking at events to reach people bereaved by suicide or to support education on being bereaved by suicide.
By sharing our stories, we can forge a connection with others that reduces isolation and risk of harm, and could potentially save lives. With the help of the training Wendy received by the SPA Lived Experiences Speakers Bureau, and Leigh’s professional background as media advisor and trainer, both are able to cater their presentations to the needs of the audience be it a corporate, school, sports group or a community group.
If your group or organisation has experienced loss from suicide or you would like to spread awareness, please contact WINGS of Hope on firstname.lastname@example.org
