About the Course
Most people with thoughts of suicide do not want to die but are struggling with the pain in their lives and invite help. Often these opportunities are missed, dismissed or avoided – leaving people more alone and at greater risk.
Learn four basic steps to recognize persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them with suicide helping resources.
Anyone who might want to help; minimum age 15 years.
