Suicide Prevention Awareness
September 11, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
It is a good thing to talk about suicide, yet it is challenging, and we often feel we don’t have the words or confidence to do so. This course introduces the topic and covers important discussion points such as how to use language around suicide, what the impact of suicide is and what are next steps to develop our learning and take action to support others.
Overview: An interactive workshop involving polls, a quiz, chat engagement/ discussion and a short video.
This session will be run by It’s a Playground Founder, Laura Rigden (Expert MHFA and SFA Instructor)
