Conversations and examples of how to do intervention

I really appreciated the way this course was laid out. It put the advice and conversation starters into practical terms and gave a variety of examples. This definitely has helped me to understand the importance of being open, honest, and how to follow that up with supports.

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.
