-Understand how your beliefs and attitudes can affect suicide interventions

-Review a person’s current risk of suicide and develop a plan to increase safety from suicidal behaviour for an agreed period of time

-Follow-up on safety commitments and access further support as needed

Participation in the full two days is required.

The workshop includes lectures, videos, group discussions, group work and skills practice.

 Bookings are essential.
