Who Should Attend?
Anyone whose role brings them into contact with people who have suicidal thoughts and feelings.
A large percentage of front line workers supporting individuals with mental health issues, are not empowered with the knowledge, skills or confidence to host suicide conversations.
Many front-line workers supporting patients/clients/service users with mental health issues are not empowered with the knowledge, skills or confidence to host suicide conversations. It is essential that staff have appropriate training in this area.
There is a misconception by many that talking about suicide might ‘give the person ideas’ or ‘tip the person over the edge’. All the research into suicide finds that when people with suicidal thoughts and feelings are given the opportunity to speak about how they are feeling, it “reduces the intensity of holding it all in” Jonny Benjamin 2017.
When caring for others, support workers and carers play an important role in safeguarding individuals in their care and they have a very important role to play.
- Who spends the most time with Patient/Client/Service Users?
- Who completes observations on individuals in your care?
- Who is the first to notice changes in the individual?
- Who is told about social issues?
- Who communicates, engages and offers emotional support on a daily basis?
In a supportive and caring environment, we should always trust our instincts, engage in conversation & REPORT your concerns. The skills to have empathetic and compassionate suicidal conversation can be learnt and are invaluable.
This course is therefore suitable for those in health care, mental health care, supported living, education and child care, public safety – law enforcement, prison services, approved housing, social services, housing services and support workers in all services.

- The History of Suicide and the Appropriateness of Language
