Fully subsidised suicide first-aid training

Do you work in Construction/Manual/Factory Settings/Shift Work/Driving in North East Essex or Suffolk? If so, you could take advantage of some fully subsidised suicide first-aid training online.

Most of us have been affected by suicide. It happens all around us: in our schools, in our workplaces, in our communities. More and more people across the UK are qualifying in suicide prevention. You could be one of them.

The National Centre for Suicide Prevention Training UK CIC and Suffolk County Council is providing training  in Suffolk and North East Essex  to raise awareness of suicide, and increase skills. The aim is to increase knowledge, skills and confidence, while challenging the stigma that can be a barrier to people at risk accessing help and keeping safe.

These courses will cover :

  • The impact and value of personal and professional experience with suicide
  • Barriers that prevent people at risk seeking help
  • Prevalence of suicide thoughts and suicide behaviours
  • The Signs of Suicide and the Suicide-Safety Guide
  • Partnership working and community resources.
