A Proactive Approach to Suicide Prevention

Taking proactive action towards mental health is a proven means to combat the many mental health disorders that are common among first responders including depression, addiction, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress symptoms. Tragically, when not addressed, the end result of each of these can be suicide. This course will discuss methods to prevent suicide by learning its traceable causes. Rather than focusing on individual risk factors, this course will explain how creating an environment to encourage help-seeking behavior can alter an individual’s trajectory from reaching suicide.
