About Course

Suicide Gatekeepers are members of the community who are in contact with people at risk for suicide. They believe suicide can be prevented and are equipped to recognise distress in individuals, respect their feelings, and refer to appropriate professional services.

You can become a suicide gatekeeper by getting trained to become one. Evidence is mounting to indicate that those who undergo gatekeeper training are better able to identify warning signs of suicide and to select successful intervention methods that can be life saving.

What Will You Learn?

  • In the routine health care context, mental health professionals treat and care for individuals in severe distress at high risk of suicide in their practice. Their timely intervention and support can be lifesaving.
  • To enable this, the individuals in distress need to reach out and seek assistance willingly. Because of their nature of distress they may not be able to reach out to seek support on their own. They need help.
  • It’s where the Helpies, Suicide Prevention front-line warriors come in to bridge the gap, and that’s the essence of the Helpie Suicide Gatekeeper Training.
