About the event

The ASK Workshop is the only suicide prevention workshop that specifically addresses suicide risk in children and gives participants developmentally appropriate strategies and tools to identify young children at risk of suicide and quickly gather and organise key details needed to assess risk and inform safety planning.

This one-day workshop challenges commonly held notions about childrens’ capacity to consider suicide. It facilitates awareness of the signs that a young child may be at risk and what is needed to help. Case studies and simulations provide opportunities to apply what is learned. A brief screening tool guides helpers to determine risk and make appropriate referral connections. A helper tool teaches how to organise and summarize the available information about a given child in a form that can be used by someone, perhaps the participants themselves, in safety planning. Common challenges in working with parents and possible solutions are addressed through guided simulations and discussion. Participants are typically helpers who routinely come into contact with children age 5-14.
