Suicide Response Training

SA Health is leading the delivery of Connecting with People training in South Australia. Connecting with People is an internationally recognised, evidence-based, suicide and self-harm mitigation / prevention training program suitable for General Practitioners, Nurse Practitioners, Practice Managers, Psychiatrists and Allied Health Professionals.

The training is provided free of charge and is fully catered; two course dinner, fruit juice and soft drinks provided, alcoholic beverages available at participant's own expense.

The training is provided by the Office of the Chief Psychiatrist (OCP) to promote the provision of a standard approach to suicide mitigation and treatment across the State, as part of the South Australian Suicide Prevention Plan 2017 – 2021.

Participants are required to complete two Connecting with People modules

- Suicide Response part 1
- Suicide Response part 2

These modules are offered on consecutive Monday evenings. On completion of both modules, participants are licensed to use the Connecting with People clinical tools when engaging with a suicidal person.

At the end of the modules participants will:

- be able to use the clinical resources to enhance their assessment and safe triage of a suicidal individual

- will have the skills to co-create an immediate safety plan

- be able to create a comprehensive, person-centred bio-psychosocial suicide mitigation plan

- collaboratively engage in a comprehensive social support mapping exercise and be able to help their patients develop strategies to increase their resilience to suicidal thoughts.
