Suicide is, unfortunately, all too common across the world. Most of us will come into contact with friends, family or workmates who are feeling suicidal at some point in our lives. That's why it's so important for us all to have at least a base knowledge of suicide and what leads to suicidal behaviours.

In this course, we will look at the main signs & symptoms of suicidal behaviour and emotional distress. We'll cover an effective action plan to help people when they're feeling suicidal, as well as useful referral options and ideas for self-care. This course is important for all workers.
