Preventing suicide: a global imperative

Report published by the World Health Organization in 2014. Available in multiple languages.

Every 40 seconds a person dies by suicide somewhere in the world. “Preventing suicide: a global imperative” is the first WHO report of its kind. It aims to increase awareness of the public health significance of suicide and suicide attempts, to make suicide prevention a higher priority on the global public health agenda, and to encourage and support countries to develop or strengthen comprehensive suicide prevention strategies in a multisectoral public health approach.

Strengthening Case Management: Case Management and the Suicidal Client

This webinar is designed for case managers who work with clients who have attempted suicide or expressed suicidal ideation. While mental health staff are responsible for the evaluation and treatment of suicidal clients, survivors may also reach out to case managers for help during times of crisis.  For this reason, case managers should also be prepared to identify risk factors, protective factors, and become familiar with basic suicide intervention skills.
