VitalCog: Suicide Prevention in the Workplace

VitalCog trains organizations to proactively address the early warning signs of suicide in the workplace. Just as organizations have realized they can help reduce heart disease by encouraging exercise, they can also reduce suicide by promoting mental health and encouraging early identification and intervention. This training will educate and equip businesses with tools to address mental health and suicide concerns within the workplace.

This two-hour training gives participants the skills and tools to appreciate the critical need for suicide prevention while creating a forum for dialogue and critical thinking about workplace mental health challenges, and by promoting help-seeking and help-giving. The course covers how to deal with someone in the workplace who may have suicidal thoughts, as well as how to handle their return to work. Supporting a coworker who lost a loved one to suicide also is part of the curriculum.
