Providing suicide first aid requires the application of skills and knowledge to efficiently and safely intervene when a person is at risk.
When you look at medical first aid, there is a clear role: to assess the wider situation and to respond safely and quickly using key skills. Suicide first aid is the same.
You will learn how to recognise people at risk, intervene at the right time, whilst providing safe and helpful assistance and support.
♦ Learn how to undertake a full suicide intervention
♦ Understand the different roles of people in suicide interventions
♦ Become alert of risk factors and also mindful of barriers to seeking help
