    A two-hour workshop designed to increase suicide prevention skills for mental health carers, consumers and workers.

    Overview:

    SALT alerts participants to signs that someone may be at risk of suicide. The program also acknowledges that while most people at risk of suicide signal their distress and display invitations for help, these may be overlooked due to a lack of understanding of the signs. Therefore, participants will learn to recognise when a person may have thoughts of suicide and respond in ways that will link the individual to further help.

    This two-hour session will work to provide practical tools that will enable you to be alert to risks and warning signs, to intervene and connect someone with thoughts of suicide to local support services.

    Outcomes:

    After completing the SALT training you will have an increased awareness of suicide indicators; understanding and knowledge of how to respond to situations where thoughts of suicide might be present; understand how to apply the SALT principals (See, Ask, Listen, Tell/Take) and how to best connect those at risk with support services in their local community.
