Guide for PreventionStreaming Video - 2006
The Samaritans, a British suicide intervention organization, fields 2.5 million phone calls per year. Using dramatized scenarios and commentary by healthcare professionals, this program replaces myths with facts about suicide: who is at risk, how warning signs are displayed, what some of the triggers are, and how to intervene. Of special emphasis is the vital need for the medical staff to engage in a compassionate dialogue with parasuicides in order to correctly assess their readiness for release and need for referrals to mental health specialists and social workers.
