Save a life, take the ZSA training!

Take this short online awareness training today and gain the skills to save a life.

 
We are calling on our communities to undertake Zero Suicide Alliance training. This is so people have the skills to
 
1. Recognise when someone may be experiencing suicidal thoughts.
2. Give the help that person needs.
 
The Zero Suicide Alliance (ZSA) have three modules that teach suicide prevention skills.
1. The Step Up Module gives tips on social isolation and loneliness.

2. The Gateway Module gives a brief introduction to the ZSA Suicide Awareness  Training. It teaches basic skills to help people struggling with suicidal thoughts. This module takes 5-10 minutes to complete.

3. The ZSA Suicide Awareness Training takes around 20 minutes to complete. This module teaches methods to help people who need to reach out.
