About this Event

Have you ever thought about helping a friend... but didn't? YOU'RE NOT ALONE. This situation is more common than you might think, and is known as the bystander effect. The Step Up! program raises awareness of *why* people don’t intervene. Once you learn about the barriers, you’re less likely to let them stop you from helping a friend!

Have you ever known someone whose been impacted by:

  • Bullying/persistent teasing
  • Sexual harassment/stalking
  • Harassment based on race, sexual orientation, body size etc
  • Depression or other mental health issues
  • Disordered eating
  • Anger/physical confrontation

Step UP! is a prosocial behaviour and bystander intervention program that educates participants to be proactive in helping others. It is considered to be the most versatile and complete Bystander intervention program available.

This training is part of the Safe and Respectful Pilbara Project, developed by the WA Centre for Rural Health as part of the Vital Change programs led by WACOSS and funded by BHP.

Should you have any queries regarding the training; please contact Catherine Wilson via email at [email protected]
