How To Handle Yourself Expertly In A Suicide Crisis

Synopsis: The Suicide Prevention Skills online training shows you how you can help others when they are thinking of suicide. As the name says, Suicide Prevention Skills builds your capacity so that you can confidently handle a suicide crisis and get the best outcome possible.


Did you know that every 40 seconds someone dies of suicide around the world? It’s a staggering statistic, isn’t it? And, did you know it’s almost impossible to predict who is contemplating suicide? But there are warning signs. We know that most people considering suicide will try to connect with someone for help. The problem is most of those attempts are easy to miss if you don’t know what to look for.

It’s sad that so many of us take this option out of desperation and disengagement. The reality is that most suicide are avoidable. Most people don’t really want to die. But they want the pain to end. Hence, there are some very useful actions you can take to help people contemplating suicide. In this course we make sure you walk away knowing how to help.

This online course is designed to teach workers, community minded people, and family members worldwide the basics of Suicide Prevention. What to look for, what people say, how they behave, that will tell you they are in trouble, and how to respond to help the person get the support they need at this time.
Learning Outcomes:

  • what tell-tale signs could indicate a person may be thinking of suicide
  • what exactly you need to do to prevent suicide
  • the very practical 4 Step Response Plan called ‘WARM’.

When should you do this course? What do you think? Before or after you need it? Would you know what to look for? Are you familiar with the warning signs? Would you know what to say? Be prepared.
