Webinar Volume 6:

Suicidal Ideation & Prevention

Suicide has a devastating impact on families, friends and whole communities. General Practitioners are often on the front lines when it comes to helping individuals struggling with suicidal thoughts and ideations.

 

Each year over 65,000 Australians attempt suicide and more than 3,000 die as a result of suicide. Suicide is the leading cause of death for Australians between the ages of 15 and 44. Understanding suicide and the treatment options available are critical.

 

This webinar will go into detail about how to recognise someone at in increased risk of suicide, what options are available and the strategies GPs can use to help those impacted by suicidal ideation, thoughts and behaviours.

PRESENTERS

The discussion is presented by ProCare Mental Health Services, a not for profit organisation based in Waratah NSW.  ProCare’s clinicians work with GPs to provide counselling, psychology, and psychiatry consultations.  Additionally, they provide the free “GP Psychiatry Support Line” service (1800 16 17 18) which is an initiative funded by 6 Primary Health Networks in NSW.
