Self-Harm and Suicide Prevention Competence Framework

As committed health and social care professionals, we should all be concerned about the incidence of suicide rates seen in some of our population groups. Being aware and recognising the potential warning signs of suicide is a key step in being able to respond, reach out and offer support to people. This new resource will help health and social care workforce to consider their role and responsibilities in supporting suicide prevention, recognising early warning signs and taking action appropriately to truly make a difference when it counts.

The e-Learning resource has been developed alongside Public Health England (PHE) and has been supported by families who have lived through suicide, as well as health care professionals who work in mental health services.
