Calm Care Suicide Awareness Workshop


It is possible for someone to start thinking suicide is the only option when they show subtle signs that they are having difficulties coping with life.

What is the importance of improving your communication skills when it comes to suicide awareness? 

In order to prevent suicide and to promote open and safe conversations about this topic, we must use language that is helpful and respectful.

People are more likely to offer or seek assistance when communication is open and safe.

Communication tips to help you be more effective

  • It is always best to avoid using labels and acronyms when addressing or referring to others.
  • You should respect the experiences and opinions of people by using neutral, inclusive words and phrases.
  • When talking about suicide and people, consideration should be given to the words you use. The use of alternative language may be appropriate depending on the context, preference, or culture of the audience. In general, people impacted by suicide are deemed more neutral and inclusive by the use of the term 'people impacted by suicide'.

Appropriate Language 

In discussing suicide, it is essential that language is factual and careful. By replacing problematic language with neutral and respectful language, we change how society reacts to and understands suicide. The conversation about suicide can be made safer.

Committed refers to someone who is criminal or immoral or who has committed an offence.  There is no crime associated with suicide. Early in the 1970s, it was decriminalised. 

It is never about success or failure when it comes to suicide; it is a tragic outcome of many complex factors that have lasting effects. As opposed to a task or project, it is not something to accomplish.

There is no such thing as a successful suicide attempt or a failed suicide attempt. It is important to use factual and careful language when discussing suicide.  Suicide or suicide attempts are common causes of death. An individual may have personally experienced a suicide attempt or may have witnessed someone else's suicide attempt.  By using safe language, words that describe suicide in a positive or negative way will be avoided.

Speaking in neutral, factual, and respectful language is less stigmatising. There can be negative connotations attached to some descriptive language. It is imperative that we communicate openly about suicide in order to avoid further stigmatisation and promote prevention.
