Suicide Risk Assessment Workshop (intermediate level)


Global and local studies suggested that the “majority of individuals with suicidal ideation do not go on to make suicide attempts”. Before we get overwhelmed by the existence of suicidal thoughts, it is helpful to further assess the suicide risk and offer relevant support. This is an especially important skill for personnel who are in contact with at-risk individuals due to their roles or job functions.

This 4-hour workshop aims to equip participants with the skills to ascertain risk level using a suicide risk assessment tool. Participants will also gain awareness on how personal and society’s attitudes about suicide influence the helping process.

Target Audience

Para-helpers or people-managers or relations (e.g. HR, supervisors, case managers, grassroot leaders, volunteers, teachers)

Individuals who have attended the Be A Samaritan (BAS) programme can also attend this course.
