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.”

Chelsea with Scott Seccombe from Veterans Centre MNC:
“Training @ Key provided an adult learning environment with non-judgemental teaching. They take the time to explain things to me which makes me want to attend.”
“I found the course very interesting and would recommend it to anyone who loves animals, like me 🙂 But I loved that it wasn’t all in class and we went on excursions aswell. It was awesome, I wished it went longer.”
“I like KAPOW a lot because it’s good to learn new things and gain knowledge. It’s also good because you make friends with the trainers and other kids.”
“Key Employment has helped me out a lot. I’m not as shy now and Key has helped me get a job and I’m more confident.”
“Before becoming a client of Key Employment I had tried to get a job part time. My friends were all getting jobs, but I wasn’t able to get one. I also found trying to apply for jobs on the internet hard because I am dyslexic. Thanks to Key Employment I am now employed as a kitchen hand.”
