216 persons attended a 2-day Suicide Intervention Workshop. In a quasi-experimental design, persons completed both a pre-&-post survey regarding their intervention behaviours both 6 months before & six months after attending the workshops. Results indicate that respondents were more likely to intervene, felt more capable in intervening, & drew upon more resources after the workshop. Subjectively, respondents reported increased knowledge & effectiveness in dealing with suicidal behaviour.
