Excellent look at the Foundations of Suicide

This course was very helpful in learning about how to help someone who may be experiencing thoughts or plans of suicide, in an interactive way of learning. I have taken other courses in the past on suicide prevention, including ASIST, but that this course really took the time to break down the language and stigma around suicide and provide a framework to approach the concerns of suicide.

Happy with the course

The risk staircase was helpful. Listing each step by risk level and outlining actions to take at each stage was helpful. The presenter also came across as knowledgeable

This course was well displayed and interactive

The only problem was I had difficulty hearing the videos with the volume turned up as high as it could go.
