STORM® is a skills-based model of suicide risk management and postvention training being offered to Secondary Schools through the headspace School Support Program.
The STORM® program is suitable for staff with welfare roles and includes training modules on:
- suicide risk assessment
- suicide safety planning
- postvention (caring for the bereaved)
The content of the program is based upon current knowledge about supporting and assisting young people with suicidal thoughts (suicide risk assessment and safety planning) and postvention, and is underpinned by adult education theories.
Several studies have indicated that the package is effective in improving skills, confidence and attitudes for suicide prevention.
