Course Learning Outcomes

Training includes information for increased awareness and knowledge related to screening for suicidal thoughts and behaviours as well as practical skills training regarding how to recognise who is at risk, how to then have a life-saving conversation in order to get an at-risk person quickly to help and support.

  • Understand the background, rationale and guidelines for use of the FSP Suicide Prevention Steps
  • Identify information on suicide risk reduction practices and critical information on unrecognized suicide risk
  • Discuss the epidemiology of suicide and describe the relationship between mental illness and suicide
  • State recognized risk factors for suicide
  • Use the FSP Suicide Screening process, including identifying suicide risk then having a life-saving conversation aimed at accessing help and support.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the skills and knowledge that you passed onto me at the training. The week following attending your programme I was able to assist in saving the life of a 14yr old girl. Without this training I’m not sure that things would have unfolded as straight forwardly as they did. I felt so empowered to know that I had done everything I could. Thank you thank you thank you
