LivingWorks & Workplaces

Why LivingWorks Should be Training Your Workplace

Workplaces are ideal environments to support safety and well-being. Most people who die from suicide are working age (16 – 65), and co-workers and managers may notice signs of suicide that others do not.

LivingWorks delivers suicide prevention skills training within small, medium, and large workplaces in all industry sectors, including construction, healthcare, technology, business, agriculture, hospitality, education, entertainment, and manufacturing.

LivingWorks Workplace Training Around the World


United States


“I work with people with complex disabilities and their families and I also volunteer on the Anxiety Recovery Centre helpline. I completed the Suicide First Aid Training over a year ago and couldn’t have predicted just how important it would be. I remember within only 24 hours after my last day of training someone in my personal life offered me my first invitation to talk about suicide. Since then I have had countless opportunities to provide people with the space to talk about suicide. When the pandemic started these opportunities have arisen in every group I exist in – my friendship groups, the Anxiety Recovery Centre helpline, clients at work, families of my clients and colleagues. I think the most profound part of training was being taught and really feeling that anyone has the ability to provide suicide first aid.”
