Community Training

The Lifeline Northern Beaches training team is proud to offer our training programs to support our local community.

The Lifeline Northern Beaches training team is proud to offer our training programs to support our local community. Our courses educate participants about mental health, suicide awareness, and domestic and family violence, while giving people the skills to respond in a caring and compassionate way. Lifeline’s mission is to create a supportive community for those who may be at risk in times of crisis and to equip individuals, families and the community to be resilient and suicide-safe.


We run regular training sessions on-site at our Balgowlah office for community groups and organisations. Our offices are located on a city bus route or 5 minutes from Manly Wharf.


For larger organisations, we can bring any of these education programs to your school, community group, or club.


Lifeline Northern Beaches provide the following:
Accidental Counsellor

Accidental Counsellor is designed for anyone. This half-day workshop gives participants the skills to recognise when a colleague, family member or friend may be struggling with their mental health; respond in a compassionate, empathetic way; and the knowledge of where to refer for help.

Domestic & Family Violence Awareness

Lifeline’s Domestic and Family Violence Response Training is a national training program that enables people to confidently:

    • RECOGNISE signs of domestic and family violence (DFV)
    • RESPOND with appropriate care
    • REFER people experiencing or at risk of domestic and family violence to appropriate support services

We offer a variety of Domestic Violence training courses some of which can be government funded. Training ranges from 2-hour general awareness sessions to 2-day workshops for health, allied health and community frontline workers. We can discuss your organisation’s needs to determine which option would be most appropriate. Find out more…


Lifeline Northern Beaches uses its 50 years of frontline work in helping people in crisis and at risk of suicide to educate the local community and create improved outcomes for people who need support.
