Filling the gap…
This project seeks to fill the gap in breaking addictions and keeping people sober by giving long-term attention to the psychological, social and emotional issues involved. Suicide is an unwanted and sad outcome from these social issues.
Support is given through a Kazak Language Club and English Language Club, crisis pregnany help (Source of Hope), distribution of health brochures through the community centre / office, research and materials development to combat suicide prevalence and other health issues.
Although it takes time, energy, motivation, and inspiration to prepare lessons for the suicide prevention materials and other health materials, it is well worth it for even one life saved.
Some participants from the alcoholic support groups have started participating in the weekly English Club to improve their language skills and increase their chances of employment and ongoing stability.
The benefits of the education and social interactions through these programs should not be underestimated in improving the lives of the participants.
