Suicide Awareness, Prevention And Intervention Training & Courses

Suicide has now touched 85% of Australians, either through their own journeys or those of people they have known or loved. The loss of a loved one or client through suicide is one of the most difficult challenges any of us can face in our lives. Many people who have encountered this devastating situation say they weren’t aware of the warning signs or they didn’t know what to do to change the situation.

How We Help

At Suicide Programs, our team is dedicated to creating practical, informative and helpful suicide prevention training and courses. It is our goal to help course participants be suicide aware and know what to say and do when they encounter someone in need of support. We are achieving this goal through easy to access online suicide prevention programs and in-person workshops.
