Suicide Prevention Training for Pharmacists

  • Duration
    2.5 hours 
  • Program Outline

    Suicide has a devastating impact on families, friends and whole communities. Pharmacists, due to their role and their accessibility in the community, have the potential to play a key role in recognising the signs and symptoms of suicide, restricting means and keeping the person safe until support is available. This Suicide Prevention Training for Pharmacists is an interactive, cased based workshop enabling peer discussion alongside the development of practical skills to implement.

    • Recognising signs warranting further exploration for suicidality

    • Talking with someone who may display suicidal signs and symptoms

    • Understanding of the various referral options.
