What can I and my team expect from this accreditation?

At the completion of the course, you will be equipped with the skills and knowledge to safely have a conversation with a suicidal person. For your safety, this is not a postvention course and is not recommended for individuals recently bereaved by suicide.

Am I eligible?

Any interested adult can attend. 

It’s also important to know that there is no prerequisite level of study or work to attend, just as there is no restriction on attending a traditional physical first aid course.

With that in mind, please don't consider this course to be a therapy or support group session. It's an extensive training program to learn how to offer mental first aid to others and understand self-care in more detail. 

Specific postvention support services can be found at the beyondblue website.

Accreditation & CPD Points

On completion of the course, many professionals may be able to claim attendance towards Continuing Professional Development (CPD) within their industry body. Please check with your relevant industry body or BLLC if you are unsure of allocation points.​
