Healthcare professionals are at greater risk for suicide according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s Occupational Suicide List. This has led state departments of health to recommend or require these professionals to receive suicide prevention training.
Frank King, The Mental Health Comedian and Pharmacist Suicide Prevention Speaker, works with pharmacy teams to develop effective suicide prevention strategies within their practices. Participants learn how to recognize warning signs associated with suicide, understand how to start a conversation, and offer support through referrals. By participating in this course, you have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of both co-workers and patients.
As a former writer for The Tonight Show, Frank, comedian and 7 times TEDx talker, knows how to infuse humor into his content and uses personal experience to highlight the importance of suicide prevention. Frank illustrates how suicide prevention practices reduce harm as well as facilitate a healthier, more productive, and more profitable pharmacy. Participants will gain a holistic understanding of mental health challenges in the workplace and learn how to reduce workplace stress, improve practice culture, and promote both customer and team well-being.
