Training for suicide safer communities

LivingWorks has a vision for suicide safer communities. We believe everyone can help make this vision a reality in the lives of people and communities around us. We invite you to share in this work through our training programs.

Our training helps people:

  • Increase their awareness of suicide and see prevention opportunities they may otherwise miss;
  • Become more alert to clues and communications that someone may be thinking of suicide;
  • Ask about suicide and respond in ways that show understanding and assess risk;
  • Work with persons at risk to increase their safety;
  • Facilitate links with further help from family, friends and professional helpers as needed.
