This e-learning module has been developed by Mersey Care NHS Trust, who are part of the Zero Suicide Alliance. It provides some fundamental information and tips that will help you to have a helping conversation with someone who may be thinking about ending their life. In order to complete the module you need to answer the pre-knowledge quiz, and then progress through the slides and video clips and finish by completing the post module quiz to help us determine the usefulness of the course. When you print your certificate to verify you have completed this module, you will also receive a copy of the Directory of Mental Health Services for your local area for your future reference. Please save this and file it somewhere useful.
