Identity and Self-esteem – Positive Psychology Tools

A mental wellbeing and health promotion toolkit.

Self-esteem refers to how we view and think about ourselves, and the value that we place on ourselves as a person.

Most women struggle with self-confidence and self-identity issues at some point in their lifetime. Deep in our ancestry we have been told, in one form or another, to base who we are and what we look like on what men think of us and what society seems to require of us.

Low self-esteem is a constant companion for too many women, especially those who experience depression, anxiety, phobias, psychosis, delusional thinking, or who have an illness or a disability. If you are one of these people, you may go through life feeling bad about yourself needlessly. Low self-esteem keeps you from enjoying life, doing the things you want to do, and working toward personal goals.

This presentation will uncover low self-esteem and identity issues, assist in improving self-esteem, help you develop ‘self-love’ through Positive Psychology tools.

Venue: The Platform. Level 3, 256 Adelaide Terrace Perth

Date: Thursday 18 October 2018 5:30 PM

Time: 5.30 – 7.30 pm

Responding to Suicide Risk

Increase the safety of individuals at risk of suicide


Suicide is a complex worldwide phenomenon. In the last 45 years, suicide rates have increased by 60% (WHO 2009). According to the Mental Health ACT data, in 2015, 3027 people are reported to have completed suicide in Australia which equates to more than 8 deaths per day. It is estimated that for every completed suicide there are 30 attempts. That’s more than one attempts every 10 minutes. Suicide remains the leading cause of death of Australians aged 15 to 44.

Responding to a suicidal crisis can be confronting. What we do and how we do it can depend on our role, responsibilities and experience but no matter what, don’t ignore the opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life.

Suicide is one of the leading causes of death in Australia. This presentation will give you an overview of risk factors and how to respond effectively to suicide risk. The information you gain will increase awareness and bust the myths about suicide.

Katherine Houareau is the speaker and has been pioneering in the area of suicide prevention in WA.
