How do you convince somebody their life is worth living?
That's the question that was tackled at the Griffith Shed for Men on Wednesday, when they got together for a suicide prevention workshop.
Men's health project officer Stuart Torrance came to talk about some of the ways to prevent suicides and improve mental health.
"We need to respond quickly to somebody at risk of suicide - it may help save a life," Mr Torrance said.
For him, prevention is better than cure - we should be there for one another during the tough times before suicide is even on the table.
Simply being there for a mate going through a rough patch can make all the difference, Mr Torrance says, and talking through the problems is a vital first step to preventing a suicidal mindset.
Griffith Shed for Men president Angelo Maloni said it'd been a valuable lesson.
"We need to be able to look someone in the face and ask them if they're okay, before it's too late," Mr Maloni said.
