The Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) Suicide Prevention Project is a state-wide, two-year project supported by the Queensland Mental Health Commission and led by the Queensland Transcultural Mental Health Centre.
The project aimed to:
- develop and pilot a suicide prevention training course designed for non-clinical roles within human services
- build the capacity of human service workers to support CALD clients who may be at risk of suicide, and
- upskill media professionals working with CALD media outlets on how to report suicide safely in the media.
The project began in May 2019 and concluded in June 2021.
Access the below training courses through Queensland Health learning management system, iLearn:
- Culturally Responsive Suicide Prevention Training for Human Service workers
