This is an excellent and thorough over-view of suicide recognition and prevention. It is handled by the presenters in a sensitive yet confidant style. I can see this being a very useful tool for professionals in the industry as well as anyone who cares about others. I highly recommend this suicide prevention course and know that I will certainly refer back to it many times to come in the future. -Student Review
