Suicide Intervention is Everyone’s Business with Chris Wright

Series 3 – Episode 3


Suicide Intervention is Everyone’s Business with Chris Wright

The more we talk about suicide, the more we bust the stigma and myths, the more people in our communities have awareness … the better equipped we are as a society to prevent suicide and help those in crisis stay safe.

In this episode Chris Wright shares his wealth of knowledge and experience as a suicide intervention skills Trainer.

We explore why fear stops many people offering help and some of the other challenges/barriers that people often perceive to helping others.

We cover the signs (invitations) to watch out for, how to open up the conversation and how listening is the key skill to supporting someone in crisis.

Building suicide safer communities really is everyone’s business.
