Key Employment client Chelsea Adams was guest speaker at Lifeline North Coast and TAFE’s Out of the Shadows and into the Light suicide prevention walk in Coffs Harbour yesterday.
Over 300 locals converged to recognise the impact of suicide and reflecting on personal experiences and lives lost.
Chelsea talked about the importance of reaching out and asking for help to develop support networks, including how Key Employment, Headspace and Wesley Youth Mission helped her.
Chelsea is an amazing ambassador for youth mental health while sharing her lived experience to spread hope to others. Her message: “things get better and there is hope.”
If you have been affected by suicide please contact Lifeline on 13 11 14 or visit their website here.
Chelsea with Scott Seccombe from Veterans Centre MNC:
“The trainer has helped me overcome barriers by building up confident work ethics and helped me to understand being in a formal working environment. Key Training is a social environment as well as a learning environment where we are all treated equal.”
“If it wasn’t for Key Employment I wouldn’t have the job I have now. I would not have had the confidence to apply for the job I did or do well in the interviews if it wasn’t for them. Key Employment isn’t scary! Just sign up with them and they will help you find a full-time or part-time job.”
“This is a necessary course for people with low esteem, life skills and self worth. There is a sense of achievement at the conclusion of the course with the added bonus of feeling that going forward is achievable.”
“I like KAPOW because I can do the work well and the trainers are accepting. It is better than school and is helping get me a job.”
“Key Employment assessed my needs and organised the correct and appropriate training to help me upskill and to improve my employment options and chances.”
