Workplace Suicide Prevention
Once your leaders have a solid foundation to role model and support workplace mental health, some teams will be ready to dig further into suicide prevention, specifically in the context of the workplace. This topic is particularly relevant for client-facing teams or teams that have experienced a loss to suicide. I will customize the content for your organization, to help build a suicide-safer workplace that prepares employees to reach out for help themselves, or to support a co-worker or a client at an appropriate level.
