New session added to Suicide and Self-harm Prevention module

Louise Garrahan, 19 May 2021

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has added a new elearning session to its adult Suicide and Self-harm Prevention module within the MindEd programme.

The session is aimed at health and care professionals who, within their daily work, may encounter people feeling suicidal, such as GPs, paramedics, emergency department colleagues and social workers. On completion of the resource, learners will:

  • consider how being in a suicidal crisis can make someone feel
  • understand what structured care for suicidality looks like and where it can be accessed
  • know what safety planning is and how to involve someone in their own safety plan
  • learn how to help someone who is feeling suicidal to complete a safety plan

The latest session complements 4 existing sessions within the Suicide and Self-harm Prevention module, which is also free to access. The final session on assessment and formulation will be available soon.

For more information and to access the session, visit the Structured Care and Safety Planning session.

MindEd is a free educational and training resource for mental health support.  The variety of free resources aims to provide adults, across professions and organisations and including parents and carers, with the knowledge to support wellbeing, the understanding to identify young and older people at risk of a mental health condition and the confidence to act on their concern and, if needed, signpost to services that can help.
