Working with Families after Suicide
30 November 2023
12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
Understanding and supporting those who have lost someone to suicide can be difficult and sensitive, given the complex nature of suicide and its impact on family members and friends. This webinar will raise awareness of these complex issues to help us better support families through this difficult and tragic event. Staff often find it difficult to engage with families when there has been a suicide and worry about saying the wrong thing or causing further distress. In this webinar, we explore how health and care staff can better support and manage a family through the acute phase of dealing with their loss, thus increasing the confidence of staff members in working with families after a death.
This webinar is for…
- Mental Health Clinical Teams – Crisis Teams / Early Intervention Teams / Assertive Outreach Teams / Community Mental Health Teams
- Clinical leads in Safety & Quality / Governance
- Clinical Directors / Managers
- Family Liaison / Family Engagement Managers
- Bereavement teams
