Do you know the signs of someone thinking of ending his life? What do you say to him or her? Where can you get help?
This four-hour session with hands-on role play will equip you to recognise the signs, positively engage those who might be having thoughts of suicide, and connect them with community resources for suicide intervention.
It will stress safety while engaging in conversations that foster open talk to address suicide.
You will learn through role play how to apply the LIFE model:
2. Inquire directly
3. Find lifelines
4. Engage professional help
The objective of LIFE Training is to equip community carers with early suicide identification, providing support and linking the person to professional care to ensure safety.
It may not be suitable if you have been affected by suicide issues in the last 12 months as some elements of this training might potentially trigger the issues again.
Anyone who feels uncomfortable or triggered at any point during the training can reach out to CFL’s staff. You will be channelled to a separate room where a trained staff will attend to you.
If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or WhatsApp 81802725.
