Gatekeeper Suicide Prevention Workshop


June 20 @ 9:00 am 4:30 pm

Gatekeeper Suicide Prevention is a 2-day workshop designed for professionals and para-professionals in the human services whose roles bring them into regular contact with people at risk of suicide.

This workshop aims to help participants:

  • Gain an understanding of the problem of suicide
  • Identify suicide risk
  • Provide a framework for risk assessment and intervention
  • Develop appropriate intervention skills
  • Understand the limits to confidentiality
  • Understand the importance of consultation
  • Gain an understanding of self-harming behaviour
  • Gain an understanding of the link between mental disorders and suicidal behaviours
  • Understand the importance of postvention

We acknowledge that attending a workshop that discusses suicide may bring up difficult and distressing emotions for people, especially for those who have been personally or professionally impacted by suicide. Therefore, we ask that you consider whether this is an appropriate time for you to attend a session before registering. If you are uncertain or wish to discuss further you are encouraged to contact the Suicide Prevention Coordinators on suicidepresuicideprevention.southwest@sjog.org.au or by calling 0429 229 400.
