Conversations about Suicide

The conversation which saves lives

Sometimes the difference between a person attempting suicide and getting the help they need, is the intervention of an ordinary person like you.

This four hour course will teach you how to identify, approach and support someone who is experiencing suicidal thoughts and behaviours using a practical, evidence based Action Plan. You will also have the opportunity to practise your new skills in a safe environment.

Developed by Mental Health First Aid Australia, this course is based on guidelines developed through the expert consensus of people with lived experience of mental health problems and professionals.

Note: This course is not a therapy or a support group. This course is
not recommended for individuals recently bereaved by suicide.
