Talking about suicide can be difficult, however, more so if you have recently been impacted by a suicide attempt or death. We encourage you to take significant time for healing before attending a suicide intervention training. For some this may be a number of months, and for others this could be a year or more. Only you know.
If you have experienced a suicide death additional healing support is available at the:
