The toolkit is a framework for developing suicide prevention capacity within an agency or organisation. The toolkit elements are:- 1.leadership; 2.mental health &wellbeing promotion; 3.suicide awareness & prevention; 4.training; 5.suicide intervention & ongoing community support; 6.postvention and 7.evaluation. If an agency fully commits to all 7 elements, we believe that they have effectively created a suicide down to zero environment. Annual Reports
The Art of Conversation is the 2nd edition of this booklet which colleagues in Scotland permitted us to adapt for use in Northern Ireland. We in Suicide Down to Zero believe that it provides quite a comprehensive suicide awareness resource. You will see that it contains: - some general facts about suicide and some facts specific to Northern Ireland; common signs that someone is suicidal and how they can be helped; being ALERT & helping; being a good listener & the 5 steps to active listening; details of suicide prevention training and some useful contacts/resources.
