HR's Guide to Suicide Prevention in the Workplace

February 5

Gain a better understanding of all aspects of suicide prevention management and how best to implement support systems.

In order to understand and incorporate suicide prevention information and strategies in a workplace setting, it is important to understand general concepts regarding all aspects of suicide, from ideation to completion. The act of committing suicide is one of ultimate despair, in which the person has reached a place in his/her mind where the all-consuming thought is that suicide is the only way to cease the mental and emotional anguish forever. There may be many combinations of circumstances that lead to this ultimate mental and emotional agony. In this topic we will focus on essential tools for emotional healing not only for employees who express suicide ideation in the hope of preventing suicide, but also for surviving employees in the aftermath of a completed employee suicide. This topic will provide you with a better understanding of all aspects of suicide prevention management including but not limited to understanding suicide ideation; contributing factors to suicide ideation; prevention strategies for suicide ideation; ensuring the cry for help of suicide ideation is addressed in terms of appropriate mental health level of care referrals; information management in the workplace if/when an employee commits suicide and strategies for implementing support systems following a completed suicide.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to discuss how to keep communication lines open in the workplace,for employees to feel emotionally supported and validated if/when they need mental health assistance regarding possible suicide ideation.
  • You will be able to describe techniques that can be utilized in the workplace setting to address an individual’s suicide ideation as a means for suicide prevention.
  • You will be able to recognize when an employee needs mental health services at various levels of care based on the severity of expressed suicide ideation.
