Online Seminar | Preventing Suicide: Empowering Frontline



The Online Seminar on “Preventing Suicide: Empowering Frontline” will take place on Monday, 25 July.


Mental health workers caring for suicidal clients and family members supporting suicidal loved ones face great challenges, as they might experience anxiety, inadequacy, and compassionate fatigue. This seminar aims to serve as a platform for frontline workers to exchange ideas about how to adopt a proactive approach to managing and supporting clients who have the risk of  self-harm and suicidal behavior. The speakers will share their experiences and provide practical skills about how to engage with these clients.
