Overcoming personal and community attitudes to seeking and providing help is a key theme of this training.
How Will You Learn?
We aim to provide a safe learning environment. The learning process includes:
• Trainer presentations, facilitated discussion, and skills practice
• Videos that illustrate what happens when signs of suicide are overlooked, and how you can contribute to safe
outcomes when these signs are heard and addressed
• Opportunities to further explore organizational applications of the training
Direct and honest discussion about suicide is encouraged. While sometimes challenging, this prepares helpers to openly approach people with thoughts of suicide and connect them with further help.
