Suicide Awareness Training
- Suicide is a difficult and highly emotive issue. Staff can often feel ill-equipped when engaging with clients who are potentially expressing, experiencing or acting on suicidal thoughts and feelings.
- harm-ed training has been developed to meet the real, practical needs of staff and carers supporting people who may be at risk of suicide. It:
- addresses the common myths that surround suicide
- helps participants to understand the issues behind suicidal feelings and actions
- explores concerns around risk and risk management within the context of organisational policies.
- establish principles that underpin a helpful response
- examines the impact of suicide on staff and carers
