Is this Workshop for You?
Supporting your team in the area of suicide prevention is essential in any workplace, but often experienced as stressful and “left to the experts”. We know that evidence tells us that designing approaches that are relevant to your workforce are critical and even more so, when the workplace demands are significant. Regardless of your context, your role as leader is vital. This training is designed to support you understand a leaders role in workplace suicide prevention and is a pillar to the Technical and Strategic Approach to Workplace Suicide Prevention.
