These are our COMFORT BOXES.
These are specifically for those young people who suffer from suicidal thoughts and /or self harm tendencies.
They are filled with things for the 5 senses. The aim of these boxes is to simply redirect the thought processes from doing something that can't be taken back. We aim to provide things that will fill their head with something else to do until the feelings leave. Our goal is simply to help the young person through that one episode. That's it. To keep them here for another day.
These are gifted to those that feel they may benefit from them. They are not for everyone.
If you have a child between 10-18 years, that suffers from these episodes, and you know they truly want to be here, you can contact us for one of these boxes.
They cost around $15 to put together so we ask that only those who will use them, ask for them.
If it helps one child, we are doing our job.
A massive thank you must go to Kempsey Macleay Refrigeration and Air Conditioning who sponsor these boxes.
I should also mention that these are available for the Macleay Valley. These are too large to post and our focus is on the young people in this area as we get very little support.
