MHN704 Understanding and Preventing Suicide

Suicidality is a significant, complex public health problem. For people aged 15-44, suicide is the leading cause of death, and its impacts on communities are far reaching. In this course, you will learn about theories of suicide, as well as the current evidence-base around its neurobiology and the innovations in assessment and suicide prevention. The emphasis in the course is on the integration of policy, person-centred practices and care, and the role of the community in suicide prevention. You will also explore approaches to preventing suicide in at-risk groups and vulnerable populations.
