This short course was easy to follow and clear to understand.

Not so daunting as I thought

by Minna Ikonen

Despite the topic matter, I feel more equipped to remain calm myself if someone needs help in this way.

Better Understanding

by Joan Rice

Although this was only a one hour course, it is packed with lots of information and has given me a better understanding to approach the subject of suicide. Also know that the person contemplating wants to be asked about suicide and starting the conversation is the first step.

Key action info

Quality course, well produced with key information with enough background information to support it. Was accessible and easy to learn from.
