Gatekeepers Intervention Skills Workshop (GISW)

The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that each year approximately 800,000 people die from suicide. This represents a global suicide mortality rate of 10.5 people per 100,000 population, or one suicide every 40 seconds. In Singapore, on the average, there is more than one suicide a day. For each suicide death, it is estimated that there are at least 7-15 suicide attempters. In a small country like Singapore, this is one too many.

In this workshop, you will:

Learn how to identify people who may be at risk of attempting suicide,

Be able to respond appropriately to a suicidal person, and

Connect them to some form of help available.
