Course summary: This course provides participants with the appropriate skills and knowledge to provide sensitive and effective intervention where risk of self-harm or suicide has been identified. The focus is on identifying and managing any immediate suicide risk in the context of a supportive helping relationship that seeks to work collaboratively with the person at risk to achieve safe outcomes.
