Event Description

Get the benefits of CONFIDENCE, VISION, and SKILL to deal with a suicide crisis in the workplace

1,000,000 people, around the world, commit suicide each year--Nearly 30,000 is Americans. On the average, 1 person commits suicide every 16.2 minutes. Males make up 79% of suicides. Over 50% of all suicides are completed with a firearm.

How many co-workers do you know that have: Talked about killing themselves; started to withdraw from fellow employees; increased the use of drugs or alcohol; just lost interest?  Do you, as a manager/supervisor know how to approach this person? Would you know how to establish a rapport and engage in active listening?

Do you know how to ask a direct question about their intentions? Do you know what you should NOT say?  Your awareness and skills in conducting these activities may be the difference between life and death.

The suicide death of a co-worker, on-site or not, will have a profound effect on fellow employees. Is your company adequately equipped to provide the support, grieving time and perhaps counseling that is needed to deal with a huge loss? Does your firm have any protocol to facilitate such a horrific incident? If the answer is NO, you got to do a lot ahead.
