FLO Talanoa

What is FLO Talanoa?

FLO Talanoa is a suicide prevention education programme for Pasifika communities that is evidence informed and culturally safe.  Le Va developed FLO Talanoa in response to overwhelming feedback that Pasifika communities want ‘face-to-face’ workshops delivered by Pasifika people from their communities, who have the right knowledge. 

To find out if there is a FLO Talanoa commuinity workshops in your region coming up, follow us on facebook and sign up to our e-newsletter. 

How FLO Talanoa works

FLO Talanoa facilitators receive free training from Le Va and reciprocate by delivering free workshops in their communities – in response our communities take ownership and leadership of community action plans.  

  • Stage one involves a two-day training workshop for community facilitators to deliver the FLO Talanoa workshops in their communities. 

  • Stage two involves the trained community facilitators delivering a four-module workshop to their communities free of charge, which can be taught in one day or in separate sessions.

One of the components of the workshop is B.R.A.V.E; young people preventing suicide by asking you to listen to their plea. Everyone can be ‘B.R.A.V.E’ for our Pasifika youth by watching and sharing this video to be informed of how you can prevent youth suicide.
