Understanding Suicide and Suicide Prevention Strategies in a Global Context

Laura Sharp, The University of Glasgow

Recognise suicide risk and optimise prevention worldwide

Suicide is preventable, yet it is estimated that a person dies by suicide every 40 seconds somewhere in the world. This equates to over 800,000 people dying by suicide worldwide each year.

On this course, you will gain a broader understanding of suicide as a worldwide issue. You will analyse global suicide rates and patterns and explore common risk factors. You will explore the social and cultural factors that can influence suicidal behaviour. You will also look at suicide prevention strategies and learn how these can be enforced in communities.

This multi-agency endorsed course is for all healthcare professionals, including both medical and allied health professionals, who are looking to enhance their understanding of suicide as a global mental health issue. Anyone interested in health research may also be interested in this course.

The Certificate of Achievement for this course may be useful for providing evidence of continuing professional development (CPD), or commitment to your career.

This course is an educational resource, it is not a therapeutic tool. If you are feeling distressed, in a state of despair or suicidal, it’s important to tell someone. Visit the International Association for Suicide Prevention to find Crisis Centres around the world. We do not provide a treatment service or advice for those in crisis.
