SUICIDE PREVENTION PLATFORM (VLESP)

SUICIDE PREVENTION PLATFORM (VLESP)

Evidence-based e-learning website that enables healthcare professionals to identify and handle suicidal behaviour.

This project is part of the Flemish Action Plan for Suicide Prevention. It aims to develop an evidence-based, multidisciplinary guideline allowing doctors, psychologists and nurses to detect and treat suicidal behaviour.

Transforming guidelines

MindBytes supported VLESP by translating the guideline into a practical e-learning website which allows accreditation and which covers the guideline’s content (know-what) as well as real-life cases (know-how). We also created stand-alone infographics and explainer animation videos that convey the guideline key messages in an intuitive and appealing way.
