Preventing suicide in the workplace 2019 - 10 September 2019 (On Demand)


To mark World Suicide Prevention Day 2019 on 10 September, CCH Learning and Employee Solution Services are bringing you this free webinar around preventing suicide in the workplace.

In a work setting, many employers 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. Other employers may believe that suicide prevention is not the role of the workplace.

This webinar will look at the many causes of suicide, from depression, anxiety, childhood trauma to psychosis. Usually these events happen outside the workplace. However, there are other factors that happen within the workplace that can lead to suicide, such as bullying, sleep deprivation from overly demanding shifts, financial pressure and excessive stress. Employers must take reasonable steps to prevent these in the workplace.

This webinar will cover:

  • The many reasons why people become suicidal.
  • The latest research around mental illness.
  • How to help someone who is suicidal and where to find help.
  • Common myths and misconceptions about suicide.
  • Why sleep deprivation plays a significant role in suicide.
  • How the topic of suicide can be addressed safely within the workplace.
  • How to support staff if there has been a death by suicide.
  • The entire talk is evidence based best practice.

The feedback from previous workshops run by Michael has been that the material is presented in an informative and hopeful way.
