A PRACTICAL APPROACH TO SUICIDE AWARENESS TRAINING
We have developed specialised Suicide Awareness Training in conjunction with Australian Clinical and Counselling Psychologist Dr Frank Cahill to fill that gap. Our training helps to bridge knowledge and theory of mental health and suicide with a practical job application, including language tools, support and self-help strategies for staff.
Here’s a good example of what we mean. Some staff may know to call for a welfare check when the threat of self-harm is high. But many don’t know how to handle the next call with a person with whom they had previously arranged a welfare check. Let’s listen to Dr Cahill talk about how you should handle it.
