Book Description

Starting a Conversation About Suicide: Foundational Training for Students includes a facilitator’s guide with handouts and a PowerPoint presentation. This adaptable resource offers sensitive, respectful, and detailed training on suicide awareness and response. It was developed to reduce the stigma around suicide and to help students acquire the skills and confidence to ask if a peer is considering suicide, listen in a non-judgmental way, and refer them to appropriate resources. It can be used for a two- to three-hour synchronous session, and it can be offered by counsellors and other trained staff to post-secondary students interested in creating safe and supportive environments on their campuses. It was created to be accessible, adaptable, culturally located, evidence-informed, inclusive, and trauma-informed.
