Suicide is a serious public health problem that affects many people globally. The statistics on suicide and suicidal ideation is on the increase daily. According to the WHO, Nigeria is rated no 5 on the World Suicide rate, a statistic that is becoming more alarming by the day. According to research, Four out of Five teens who attempt suicide have given clear warning signs, but we have our eyes glued on the screens of our smart phones, creating a world of smart phones by ‘dumb people’. We have lost touch with ourselves and have become unaware.

This workshop will explore how Applied Improvisation can help strengthen suicide prevention by making you become more aware (noticing what is happening and unfolding).

Supporting people with suicide ideation requires being HUMAN: being present here and now, listening, creativity, problem-solving and teamwork. All these are principles of improvisation.

This session will explore:
How can we be more aware (noticing what is happening and unfolding), present (believing in what is happening and unfolding) and available (Supporting and giving expression to what is happening and unfolding) to people around us.
