What is covered

The aim of this training is to introduce the Spot the Signs campaign, raise awareness of suicide and provide practical steps to help attendees feel more confident in recognising and responding to those affected by suicide.

It was refreshing to revisit some areas with more in-depth discussion such as, real-life scenarios, specific crisis/safeguarding situations and how to manage them

By the end of this training it is expected that you will:

  • Introduce and raise awareness of the Spot the Signs and Save a Life campaigns
  • Gain a broader understanding of people who are experiencing suicidal thoughts and those who may be more at risk
  • Feel more confident to spot the signs and ask questions to be able to identify those who may be at risk
  • Provide practical steps to develop confidence in recognising and supporting those at risk and affected by suicide
  • Have signposting information and an overview of services available locally
  • Understand the importance of self-care in a supporting role
