Preventing suicide in the workplace 2018 - 16 August 218 (On Demand)

Description

New Zealand has one of the highest suicide rates in the OECD and the highest youth suicide rate. Numbers of suicides have risen for the past 3 years in a row and men are dying by suicide at a ratio of three men to one woman.

Having a devastating effect across communities, the impacts of a suicide on all are long lasting and profound.

Suicide can be a scary and intimidating topic and we are not collectively good as a nation at addressing and discussing these issues openly.

In a work setting, many companies feel that they must do more to address the problem of suicide, yet they often don’t know where to start or they worry they will get it wrong and make things worse.

To mark Suicide Prevention Day in September, CCH Learning and Employee Solution Services are bringing you this free webinar around preventing suicide in the workplace.

The webinar will cover the reasons why people become suicidal and will look at more than just depression. Topics covered will include:

  • Common myths and misconceptions about suicide.
  • How the topic of suicide can be addressed safely within the workplace.
  • What to do if someone has made a suicide attempt or died by suicide.
  • Where and how to help someone who is suicidal.

 

The entire session is evidence based best practice. 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Workplaces will gain the confidence to address the topic of suicide in a safe and supportive manner.
