The Suicide Funnel is designed as a training aid that can serve as the basis for a candid discussion of the potential indicators of an officer’s suicidal thoughts & behaviours as well as appropriate interventions. The funnel shape visually conveys the normality of occasional thoughts of wanting the pain to stop & the danger of slipping more deeply into the funnel. The short form is designed for projection overhead & the longer form as a handout to the officers. The information includes a list of indications an officer might be considering suicide & a summary of suicide interventions. JA
