Workplace Safety Planning
Introductory | Mental Health Literacy | 58 Minutes
About the Course
The Workplace Safety Planning course is part of the Workplace Mental Health Ally Series and covers the topic of safety planning, for instances of intimate partner violence and suicidal ideation. Although Workplace Safety Planning is a standalone course, it is best taken after the Workplace Suicidal Behavior Competency course as it both furthers its content and offers practical ways to help others at work who are at risk for suicide. Completing the Workplace Safety Planning course will take approximately 60-80 minutes of continuous learning time.
This course was created for those who want to help someone in their workplace who is in an abusive relationship, or who is experiencing suicidal ideation. Based on up-to-date statistics from governing bodies and relevant scholarly articles, this course is full of learner focused activities, live-filmed videos and attractive animations.
NOTE: We recommend completing Workplace Mental Health Competency 1 before taking any other Workplace Mental Health Ally Series courses.
