Our member Erminia Colucci suggests her latest publication about suicide:
“Suicide first aid guidelines for assisting persons from
immigrant or refugee background:
a Delphi study”.
Here her comment about it:
“This article is part of a series of projects by the authors aimed to develop a community-based tool to help members of the public to recognise potential warning signs for suicide and practical advice about how to respond (and what not to do) if someone close to them was considering taking their own life. The guidelines specific for assisting persons from immigrant or refugee background were developed using an expert-consensus method (Delphi) with panel of professional and/or lived-experience experts. The article provides a list of the items included as well as links to the free resources developed from this project, i.e. the complete printable Suicide First Aid guidelines and the shorter infographic (available also on https://mhfa.com.au/mental-health-first-aid-guidelines#mhfa-suicide-refugee ). Members of this mailing list are invited to distribute the article as well as the free resources to anyone who is likely to encounter people from immigrant or refugee background at risk for suicide. The authors are now looking for opportunities to also develop training based on these guidelines (train the trainer style) and members are encourage to contact the first author Dr Erminia Colucci (firstname.lastname@example.org) if interested”.
Looking forward to sharing with you
