If you’re feeling suicidal, it’s hard to see how anything could help. Certainly, many suicidal people won’t want to take an online course to help them through it. This means that although suitable for suicidal people, this course is ultimately going to be of great use to other people. People that might not even know that someone close to them is suicidal. It’s a difficult topic to talk about, but someone suffering from these feelings may be closer than you think. It’s important that we take it very seriously so we can save ourselves or someone we know, from harm.
Someone you know may very well be feeling suicidal right now. Your partner or child. Maybe someone you sit near at work. The signs are usually there, but they can be hard to spot. This course helps you recognise the reasons people consider suicide as a solution to their problems, and looks at who is most likely to be at risk. We’ll help identify any warning signs, and help you have a successful conversation about suicidal thoughts so you can assist someone who needs immediate help.
You’ve likely been in a situation where you’ve noticed somebody acting strange and withdrawn. Maybe you suspect that they are sad, or they need someone to talk to. And if you’ve tried, and they tell you, verbally or physically, that they want to be left alone it’s natural to avoid the subject in case you make it worse. But actually, doing that is probably the wrong thing to do.
Sometimes people become so overwhelmed with a problem in their life that they contemplate intentionally taking their own life. It’s a horrible situation, and people don’t like talking about it. But many people suffering with suicidal thoughts haven’t decided they definitely want to die. This means knowing how to talk about suicide, however uncomfortable it may be, can save someone’s life. This course is designed to help.
We know, it’s a tricky subject to approach, but someone must start the conversation when lives are at risk. We’ve tried to make the course as sympathetic as possible, and we follow a suicidal character throughout, who, one step at a time, gets through it with some help from his friends and family. Anyone that has ever felt low and has sought help, or anyone that has given help to someone else can relate to that experience.
In addition to our exquisite animation, there is some interactivity within the course to help keep learners engaged, with clickable areas to follow different tips to lead the conversation. We’ve also provided the whole course as a colourful workbook for learners to take away and study at their leisure when they’re no longer online. This helps keep these tips at the forefront of their minds.
Everyone has the right to learn and learner need can vary demanding on environment or disabilities. This course comes with transcripts so people have text options for an media, subtitles for all videos and is screen reader friendly with alternative text.
We take a number of steps to ensure visuals and navigation is easy for your people. For more information on the steps we take for accessibility check out how we make our courses.
