FLO Talanoa – community empowerment in action

Pasifika communities are empowered into action after attending a FLO Talanoa community workshop run by one of the 74 trained FLO Talanoa suicide prevention facilitators.

Every FLO Talanoa facilitator has completed the free two-day training delivered by Le Va staff, and are committed to deliver a workshop within their own respective parts of the Pasifika community. 

FLO Facilitators have been delivering workshops to their families, church groups, workplaces, the Pacific public health sector and many more for almost 12 months. To date 10 workshops have been delivered in New Plymouth, Auckland, Wellington, Tokoroa, Whangarei and Palmerston North, with more than 312 community members in attendance.

We still have two workshops open for registration for those interested in becoming a FLO Talanoa Suicide Prevention Facilitator.

The two-day Train the Facilitator event is free of charge but participants are expected and supported to deliver free workshops in their communities within three months of completing the training.

Next dates

Dunedin:        21– 22 July 2016
Auckland:       25 – 26 August 2016
