Learn the skills to keep someone safe from suicide with LivingWorks Start

Congratulations on taking the first step towards building your suicide prevention skills.

Many people are surprised to learn they are far more likely to save a life with suicide intervention than with CPR. In just one hour online, LivingWorks Start teaches you to recognise when someone is thinking about suicide and the knowledge to connect and guide them to help and support, even from a distance.

You don’t need to be a health professional to keep someone safe from suicide.

This is why Brisbane North PHN is funding the LivingWorks Start online training program for 200 residents of the North Brisbane and Moreton Bay region. This online training program empowers you to recognise the signs someone may be at risk of suicide and provide life-saving support. Anyone can learn skills to keep someone safe and alive.
