Perhaps I am too close to suicide, having a close family member die in this way. The whole experience was and still is very traumatic. But that meant I felt a little frustrated by the course. It seemed to encourage people to think they could fix the situation, when I don't think you can in a "first aid" situation. The good thing was that it encouraged people to talk. I was surprised there wasn't more discussion about referral pathways. For example to GPs.
The session is helpful to understand how we can provide first aid and to have understanding on how to approach / handle conversation with someone who is having thoughts of suicide. It is even better if we have more videos to watch and more real life examples the tutor can share.
