The Little Red Threat Book

This book is about suicide being used as a threat. It came from the learnings of local people in Alice Springs who gathered for two community forums in 2007 and again in 2019. This community wanted to tackle a problem that has felt difficult, confusing and dangerous for many people. In this book, we're sharing insights and understandings about situations of risk that flare up when someone says they will kill themselves unless they get what they want or need from others. Sometimes, the demands people make in these situations can put others in a difficult position, where they're torn between supporting someone else's safety or looking after their own wellbeing. This resource is about ways to offer care and support.
