A course in suicide prevention, intervention and postvention

 

Overview

Target audience: A wide range of workers from health, education, community, emergency, youth, and corrective services sectors

Course summary: This course will provide participants with a common set of understandings and skills as members of the community who are concerned with suicide prevention. The aim of the training is to develop participants' awareness, knowledge, and skills in suicide prevention. The training program looks at all levels of action: prevention, intervention, and postvention. It is different from other training programs in that it goes beyond the face-to-face 'first-aid' skills commonly associated with working in suicide prevention. The training program takes the particular focus of promoting evidence-based and best practice based prevention, intervention and postvention, and the content is regularly updated with current research. Course modules include:

Fee payable: Yes

Delivery mode: On site

Financial support for Indigenous students: Not specified
