Suicide First Aid

Know how to help

Just as we all have mental health and physical health, we are also susceptible to crises that may lead to thoughts of suicide.

These crises can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, or background.


Unfortunately, there remains a stigma around suicide and thoughts of suicide, often leaving people unsure of how to support a loved one, friend, or colleague who may be in crisis or to know how to seek help for themselves.

Each year, countless lives are lost to suicide, making it essential to learn how to recognise the signs and provide timely support.

Suicide first aid is about understanding how to identify, approach, and support someone who may be experiencing thoughts of suicide.

It is a vital skill that could save a life, whether it's someone close to you or a colleague at work.


"Empowering individuals with suicide first aid skills fosters a compassionate and responsive environment that can make a real difference in saving lives." (World Health Organisation, 2022)

Below you will find information on some of the Suicide First Aid training solutions Blooming Mind can provide to support you in helping to make our workplaces and communities safer for all.

"Suicide prevention is everybody's business. We all have a role to play in creating a world where suicide is preventable." - Dr. Alexandra Fleischmann, World Health Organisation.
