This course is ideal for anyone who already works with, or may work with, someone who has made a suicide attempt. This includes A&E doctors and nurses, mental health teams, GPs and practice nurses, school counsellors, therapists and anyone who has done the ASIST course. The training also lends itself to people working in a mental health team under the guidance of a multi-disciplinary care plan.
SafeTALK, and ASIST cover the period leading up to crisis point, and at crisis point. Suicide To Hope is designed to be used after crisis point when the individual is safe again. The workshop’s goal is to encourage and enable participants to apply a recovery and growth oriented approach to working with persons previously at risk and currently safe from suicide. Its purpose is to strengthen hope by aiding recovery and growth.
