Heartbeat of Humanity: Suicide Prevention in The Red Cross Red Crescent Movement

The important thing is to listen to a person who has disclosed suicidal thoughts and not judge them for it or say they are exaggerating. It is also important to make sure that you can sit with them in a quiet location where you can genuinely have the time and space to actively listen to them and understand whether they are thinking of doing it immediately, meaning it is an acute emergency, or if they have been thinking about it for a long time and having a difficult time.

In this episode of Heartbeat of Humanity, IFRC Psychosocial Centre Senior Communications Advisor Jesper Guhle interviews Technical Team Lead Sarah Harrison about how Red Cross Red Crescent staff and volunteers can implement suicide prevention services in their programmes.

In the podcast, a suicide prevention guide is mentioned. Find it here.

The podcast Heartbeat of Humanity is mainly for staff and volunteers in the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement, especially staff and volunteers working in mental health and psychosocial support services.
