S.A.L.T is a 2-hour presentation to increase suicide alertness in the workplace. This program alerts workplace members to signs that a person may be considering suicide. It acknowledges that while most people at risk of suicide signal their distress and invite help, these intervention opportunities are often overlooked. Participants learn to recognise when someone may have thoughts of suicide and to respond in ways that link them with further suicide intervention help.
The primary objectives are to:
- Increase the support available to staff within a workplace that may have been affected by suicide or having thoughts of suicide, and
- Provide the practical tools for participants to be able to be alert to, intervene and connect someone with thoughts of suicide to appropriate support.
