Suicide prevention training

Informed by the latest research in suicide prevention, Wesley LifeForce training equips participants with a variety of skills such as managing suicidal crisis, understanding risk and protective factors, as well as how to recognise potential warning signs. We offer both full-day workshops and half-day seminars. Our programs are aimed at training individuals from all walks of life, as well as organisational groups.

The training

Wesley LifeForce has developed quality suicide prevention training. Our Suicide Prevention Workshop is designed to teach people how to identify the signs that someone may be at risk of suicide and appropriate action to take. Simple effective interventions can make a real difference and save lives. All Wesley LifeForce facilitators are accredited trainers and have completed suicide intervention training. Many are also accredited counsellors.

Community information resources

When faced with a crisis, individuals often do not know how to access appropriate assistance.  With this in mind, Wesley LifeForce has developed ‘ the Wesley LifeForce Service Finder’. Every workshop participant receives a handout with information on how to download the service finder which includes national 24-hour crisis numbers and information about local community services/resources.

Ensuring participant safety

All workshop material is specifically designed with participant’s safety in mind. Our course material is vetted by MindFrame – an Australian Government body which provides expert advice to the Suicide Prevention Sector on responsible reporting/portrayal of the issue of suicide.

The outcomes

  • understand risk and protective factors
  • how to identify the warning signs that someone may be at risk of suicide
  • how to ask directly about suicide intent.
  • understand what local and national support and resources are available to support a person at risk.
