Learning outcomes:

By the end of this course participants will have:

  • Awareness that people at risk of suicide are often not given help due to cultural myths and misinformation
  • The ability to recognise when a person might be having thoughts of suicide
  • The skills to be able to engage that person in direct and open talk about suicide
