Explore the practical, policy and research issues in the field of suicide prevention in this graduate certificate. You'll gain a basic understanding of the key themes that emerge in suicide research and contemporary suicide prevention practices.
The foundations of suicide and its prevention are explored through examination of historical, cultural, epidemiological, and practical theory and practice elements, providing a 360-degree perspective of the phenomena and its complexities. The role of lived experience is also emphasised given the critical role of the 'voice' of those who have been impacted by suicide loss or suicidality for informing suicide and its prevention.
As a student of this program, you'll learn alongside student peers who share your interest in suicide prevention. Many will be working in the health sector already, allowing you to build a wider network of professional connections as you learn. You will have ample opportunity to connect with people in online seminars. Throughout, you will be guided through the course materials by leading experts in suicidology.
The flexibility within this degree equips you for careers in the multi-disciplinary fields of health, social sciences, education, welfare, correctional services, emergency services and volunteer-peer based suicide prevention workforce. You will also benefit from specialist capabilities, enabling employment in suicide prevention and/ or mental health workforce including policy, academia, education, and non-clinical/clinical practice-based settings.
