What is it? 

Recognise and Respond: Suicide Prevention for everyday life, aims to assist in reducing and preventing suicide in Australia by equipping people with the skills to intervene with someone who is contemplating suicide.   

A self-directed e-learning module comprising of four main learning components:  

  • recognising the signs of suicide  

  • having a conversation with and supporting the person  

  • providing help to the person  

  • Self-care 

The learning experience includes interactive activities, videos depicting interactions between a person experiencing thoughts of suicide and a helper, and a quiz to test the learner's knowledge. The module will take approx. 60 minutes to complete. 

Developed and evaluated, via a randomised controlled trial (RCT)
