Suicide Awareness/Prevention

Overview
Suicide remains a taboo subject in many cultures, including the workplace culture.
Suicide rates vary dramatically across countries and cultures, and yet all suicides result in personal devastation and family disruption. Suicide also has a tremendous impact on the work environment, an impact that organizations often have great difficulty in addressing. The purpose of this programme is to raise awareness of suicide as a workplace issue and to serve as a means of prevention.
