It can be really difficult to talk about suicide. However, being able to confidently address this issue in the workplace can help your staff to feel safe turning to you if they experience suicidal thoughts.

This guide created by the CIPD shares tips and advice on creating a supportive and positive culture for mental health, responding to the risk of suicide within your organisation, and what you might need to do if a member of staff at your organisation takes their own life.

This guide is aimed at people professionals, like your organisation’s HR team, because it contains advice on creating policies and guidelines for all staff to be made aware of. If you are a line manager and would like to understand how to respond to suicide in the work place, this guide also from CIPD might be able to support you.
