Defining Suicide Prevention: Why Is It Important?
Workers’ compensation professionals have detailed data on workplace-related injuries and fatalities. However, they rarely take into account the impact mental health has on these injuries and deaths. Additionally, psychosocial hazards at work are under-recognised.
In the Evidence Check published by Sax Institute, the risk of occupational suicide is discussed.
Farmers and agricultural workers seem especially vulnerable to lethal weapons’ increased availability.
There has been consistent evidence that veterinarians are more likely to die by suicide than other healthcare professionals, with a suicide rate four times higher than the general public and twice that of other health disciplines. In Australia, 80 percent of veterinarian suicides are caused by self-poisoning due to increased access to lethal means.
Self-poisoning is the most common method of suicide among women compared to men. Relationship problems tended to be among the most reported life events before suicide in both groups.
In comparison to other occupations, nurses and midwives are more at risk of suicide. Furthermore, as traditionally feminised roles, occupational gender norms and perceived stigma were identified as possible risk factors.
The suicide rates of emergency services are relatively scarce in Australian research.
Despite recent studies in the US and Australasia finding no significant increase in police suicide rates, international studies indicate an increased risk for suicide among police and correctional workers. The risks facing correctional officers, however, are greater.
In earlier Australian studies, workers in low-skilled jobs in construction, such as machinists and labourers, reported substantially higher suicide rates than skilled workers, with the suicide risk almost double that of other occupations.
In the creative industries, both males and females have a higher suicide risk, particularly for female actors, dancers, authors, directors, designers, media presenters, and musicians.
There Is a Connection Between Untreated Mental Illness And Suicide
Those suffering from illnesses like depression, anxiety, and substance abuse may experience suicidal thoughts and symptoms, which make them feel unable to cope. Those who suffer from bipolar disorder, trauma, or thought disorders such as schizophrenia may experience racing and intrusive thoughts. In addition to being distracted, a person can also lose focus and become less aware of their surroundings.
There is also a possibility that mental health conditions may cause impulsivity, impaired perception, agitation, tunnel vision, distorted thinking, and paranoia. The presence of these symptoms may affect productivity, morale, and efficiency at work.
Symptoms of mental health challenges that reach crisis levels can be accompanied by physical health challenges, such as pain, gastrointestinal problems, and poor heart performance. Additionally, people who suffer chronic pain or other disabilities might feel as though the world is crumbling around them. The lack of ability to do the things they used to do, as well as the disappearance of social networks, cause many people to experience emotional distress. Without intervention, this spiral can have significant impacts on workers.
Often times, when overwhelmed by their emotions, people think the only way out of their pain is to die. As a result, they may take more risks, or even begin practice suicidal behavior, either consciously or subconsciously they test their ability to hurt themselves. In our workplaces, a greater number of people than we previously thought experience suicidal thoughts.
The Following Steps Can Be Taken By Workplaces To Strengthen Psychological Safety
People need to be aware of potential problems early on, develop strategies to avoid crisis situations such as suicide, and have protective factors in place.
Discussions on toolboxes. To educate employees about mental health and suicide prevention, companies are incorporating tools such as toolbox talks into toolboxes.
Providing employee assistance programs. There is no doubt that companies’ employee assistance programs (EAPs) are one of their most valuable assets. A number of services are offered by them, including psychological assessments and short-term counseling for employees, incident management, and fit for duty evaluations. EAP providers and industry-specific mental health experts can assist employers when concerned about a worker’s safety. Additionally, they can assist with the development of reintegration plans for employees who have taken mental health leave.
EAPs are usually hidden benefits, and that makes them problematic. Often, people don’t know where their EAP is located or what services are available. While some EAPs offer the most up-to-date services, others are superficial, short-term, or provide referrals only. Thus, the first step in promoting mental health services like EAPs is to “kick the tires.”
Develop a training program and educate the workforce. By educating people about the issue and bringing awareness to it, stigma can be reduced and replaced by reassuring reality.
A training program should be implemented. It is important for everyone to become familiar with basic mental health topics and skills in the same way that CPR is important. We have a better chance of noticing problems and taking corrective action when necessary when more people are made aware of these. Suicidal symptoms can be identified earlier, which results in more help-seeking.
The standard first aid training for mental health can be complemented by suicide prevention training Australia, which will help managers, peer supporters, wellness coordinators, safety managers, and others become more aware and competent to handle suicides. Active listening, empathy, empowerment, and caring follow-up are the skills people turn to when they want to determine whether basic active listening, empathy, empowerment, and care can help.
