SafeSide suicide prevention workforce training
The SafeSide framework is an approach to workforce suicide prevention training. SafeSide focuses on planning interventions, rather than predicting the risk of suicide and is currently being implemented by primary care providers, within the Hunter, New England and Central Coast regions.
