Course Information

Is this workshop for you?
This workshop is for people wishing to better understand how to identify, respond to and support someone experiencing emotional crisis, including suicidality. Whether you are in an administration role at a doctors surgery, you are an allied health practitioner or perhaps a member of the community. There are some essential components of any training when we look to offer support and prevent suicide. Those components include identifying helpful and unhelpful attitudes and beliefs, exploring preparedness and capability to respond, in addition to identifying appropriate options and resources. This course covers them all using a step by step approach, that draws from the latest evidence and practice!
In this training, you will 
  • Examine the barriers that stop someone from enquiring about suicide - even when they thought nothing would stop them...
  • Learn how to identify warning signs for suicide, including for those people not demonstrating mental health symptoms
  • Identify key components to an effective and compassionate 'check-in'
  • Identify and practice skills to undertake a suicide risk screen
  • Observe a video demonstration, where a Safety Plan is implemented
  • Identify essential aspects of a Safety Plan, including the potent 'must-have' inclusions that support a person thinking about suicide
  • Outline other critical factors necessary to ensuring the safety of someone after they have been referred for support.
