Preventing Suicide in the Workplace 2020

Description

World Suicide Prevention Day 2020

Suicide is preventable. Some people believe that there is nothing we can do to stop someone dying from suicide, they think “If we stop them doing it one way, they will do it another way.” This is not correct at all; research suggests that if you can stop someone in the moment of crisis then there is an exceptionally high chance they will live.

The world has changed dramatically in the last year with the fallout from Covid-19. There has never been a more urgent time for workplaces to take active and practical steps to prevent suicide.

Join us on this free webinar where we will cover the many reasons why people become suicidal and learn how workplaces can address the topic of suicide in a safe and supportive manner. We will look at:

  • 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.
  • What should employers look for as a response to Covid-19?
  • How the topic of suicide can be addressed safely within the workplace.
  • How to support staff if there has been a death by suicide in the workplace.

The entire session is evidence based, focusing on latest research and best practice.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

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