Who should attend?
How can you tell that a person may be at risk? What are the signs? What can we do? What should we say? Should we say anything? If we talk to them about suicide will that give them the idea? These are common questions asked about suicide and suicide prevention during this workshop. This workshop looks at how we can recognise and respond to a person who may be at risk to suicide.
This short workshop provides a factual and sensitive environment designed to enhance participant awareness of how to better recognise and respond to someone who may be at risk to suicide.
In addition to promoting a better understanding of suicide warning signs and protective factors, participants will have the opportunity to discuss some suicide myths and misconceptions attitudes and beliefs that may prevent engagement with a person at risk.
They will also have the opportunity to learn how to ask about suicide where they are concerned that someone may be at risk.
A range of referral options are also discussed and provided can support those at risk to suicide.
