We need to talk about suicide
Published: 6 February, 2019
Preventing suicide can be as much a societal or cultural issue as it is a medical one. We need to talk about suicide: helping everyone to feel more confident to talk about suicide is an e-learning programme that has been developed to support the ambition of reducing the stigma associated with suicide, to help everyone see that simply asking someone how they are and talking about suicide can really help.
The programme can be used as an introduction to suicide awareness and suicide prevention skills, to consolidate existing skills, as part of an organisation’s induction process, or for personal and professional development.
The proposed target audience include non-mental health practitioners and administrative and support staff across a range of settings such as primary care and supported living settings.
The programme supports learning and development in suicide competence at level one and is available on the e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) hub here.
