Until now, workplace health and safety has focused on safety. It is more important than ever to include mental health and wellbeing in your health and safety plan. Regardless of occupation, workplaces are a logical site for suicide prevention programmes.
In order to reduce New Zealand’s high suicide rate, we must look at how we can help keep our men safe.
This workshop is an introduction to suicide prevention in men of working age, and to workplace suicide prevention programmes. Examples of successful programmes will be discussed.
It will be beneficial to employers, managers, human resources, staff responsible for health and safety, and anyone else with an investment in workplace health, mental health and suicide prevention.
