About this workshop
Workplaces have an opportunity to play an important role in raising awareness and providing early intervention and support to those at risk of suicide.
Educating all staff on the warning signs of suicide intent and increasing their confidence to have a conversation and provide support can make a significant difference to someone at risk.
This workshop deals with topics related to mental health and supporting people in a crisis situation and some of the content may be confronting or distressing. This is particularly true for people who have experienced self-harm, suicidal behaviour, or mental illness, or who have supported others through similar experiences.
- Risk and protective factors that may influence mental health and wellbeing
- Self-harm and suicide
- Groups vulnerable to suicide, and the language of suicide
- How to respond and support someone who may be experiencing suicidal thoughts
- The importance of personal self-care when supporting others, and how to understand our own stress response
- Know where to find further resources and support
All staff. Also beneficial to people leaders and those with client facing roles.
