suicide prevention

The outcome of the Lishman Health Foundation sponsored Suicide Prevention project was the development of an on-line multi-media training programme for GP’s
The programme trains GP’s to manage suicidal patients

An assessment of existing services (also funded by the Lishman Health Foundation) found that

  • 75% of GP’s had not undertaken suicide prevention training in the last three years
  • less than 50% of GP’s could identify early warning signs of suicidal intent and
  • less than 10% of GP’s consider current inter-professional collaboration as adequate in the management of the suicidal patient
