RCLDS – Calm Suicide Intervention
Thursday November 4, 2021, 9:30 am - 1:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:30 am, repeating until Friday November 5, 2021
This workshop is only available to residential care workers in Victoria.
Learn how to understand, respond to and prevent suicide. An evidence based, Australian training program that empowers you to have a ‘CALM conversation’ about suicide, to reduce stigma, promote help seeking and save lives.
CALM empowers participants to recognise and respond to suicide risk, and to support someone through stages of positive intervention, the development of a safety plan, and linking to other services for further help.
Training in a supportive, respectful and inclusive environment, accepting each individual’s differences, with consideration and adaptation for their culturally diverse needs.
CALM helps participants to:
- Recognise the five signs of suicide
- Make a positive connection
- Hold the space and deeply listen
- Develop a plan for strength and safety
