Upcoming Training & Events

26 Feb
Basic Suicide Prevention
The training is three and a half hours long and covers: • what can make people vulnerable to suicide • warning signs to look out for • how to ask people whether they’re thinking about suicide • protective factors • recognising risk • getting help and support The session involves a PowerPoint presentation, large group discussion, small group work and exercises in pairs. Handouts are provided after the training in electronic format. The session concentrates on adults (rather than children and young people). This isn’t a therapeutic session, it’s a practical, structured training session, which offers techniques and information to enable people to feel more confident to intervene, if they think someone is suicidal. We know that at times people can find suicide prevention training difficult because of personal experiences. The training might stir up difficult feelings for some people, so we ask people to consider this and to choose a time to attend when they feel able to manage any difficult feelings that may arise for them. Information about support for people who feel suicidal, or who have been bereaved by suicide can be found on www.happyoksad.org.uk
