Understanding suicide

3.5 hour instructor-led workshop
For people leaders and employees


Suicide is more widespread than you might think. It’s the fourth leading cause of death worldwide. Before a person reaches this stage, however, there are often red flags. It’s vital that these signs aren’t ignored, overlooked, or minimized by family, friends, and loved ones. This workshop will help participants develop a preliminary understanding of the phenomenon of suicide, and intervene to ensure that co-workers or loved ones in distress get the right help, at the right time.

Learning objectives

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to do the following:

  • Recognize risk factors and warning signs.
  • Understand protective factors.
  • Learn tips and strategies to help colleagues or loved ones who share their situation, get professional help.
  • Educate individuals about available support options.
