CORES Australia, a community based program committed to suicide prevention, is supporting the Stop Male Suicide in QLD seminar, to be held in Brisbane on Friday 3rd June 2016.
CORES aims to educate members of local communities on how they can intervene when they encounter a person they believe may be suicidal. CORES is short for “Community Response to Eliminating Suicide”.
Ross Romeo, the Queensland co-ordinator and counsellor of CORES, will be speaking at the seminar in Brisbane, that will bring together people who are committed to taking action to help Stop Male Suicide, which currently takes the lives of six men in Australia every day.
A former cane farmer, Ross was born, bred & raised in the Burdekin. He is also the School Chaplain at St Francis Ayr. Ross joined CORES in 2009 after losing his best mate to suicide in 2005.
