In Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) for the Suicidal Person course, participants learn the skills and acquire the knowledge required to safely have a conversation with someone who may be thinking about suicide and how to connect them to appropriate assistance.
MHFA for the Suicidal Person course is an excellent stand alone MHFA course or as a companion to the 2 day Standard Adult Mental Health First Aid Course.
MHFA for the Suicidal Person course has been endorsed by Suicide Prevention Australia, the national leadership organisation for the suicide prevention sector in Australia.
“I feel more confident now to take the steps to identify and respond to a person displaying ‘at risk of suicide’ behaviours.”
