Suicide Prevention Training
Suicide Prevention In The Workplace
Businesses can train their staff how to identify people who may be at risk for suicide and how to link them to care. Usually, organizations choose to train HR staff, supervisors or managers, or peer supporters, but anyone in an organization can potentially be trained in what is known as “suicide prevention gatekeeper training.” Suicide Prevention Gatekeepers are people who are likely to observe changes in mood and behavior in others and can link those at-risk for suicide to help. Sometimes managers can play this role, but sometimes an administrative assistant or trusted colleague might be just as effective. By increasing the number of people who are trained in “gatekeeper training,” a company will increase the likelihood that people at-risk for suicide will be identified earlier in the progression of suicidal thoughts and behavior, and that the possibility of a catastrophic outcome will be reduced.

How Suicide Impacts The Workplace
Lost earnings from suicide cost workplaces $1.3 billion per year.
For each suicide that is prevented, an average of $1,182,559 is saved, including $3,875 in medical expenses and $1,178,684 in lost productivity.
These numbers speak volumes, but the benefits of creating a mentally healthy work environment go far beyond these cost savings. Supporting workers through tough times fosters a sense of unity and loyalty that helps lift employee morale and retention. The promotion of mental health is an investment in a company’s greatest asset: its people.
While suicide prevention may seem like a topic too intensive for the workplace to take on, there are many prevention strategies that do not require much effort but can make a tremendous difference. Here is a sample of topics discussed in corporate training with Rosebud Consulting, LLC.
