“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”

South-East Suicide Prevention Network

South East Suicide Prevention Network (SESNP) was launched in April 2019. The Network was founded due to an enormous lack of support and/or prevention services in the local communities.

Renate has have been involved since SESNP’s first meetings and is currently providing emotional support to participants in a series of community workshops. These workshops focus on how to speak to loved ones or those in our lives, who we think might be at risk of suicide. 

Please visit the links below to learn more about SESNP’s training and education and workshops.
