Training will be run by Neami LifeConnect and will increase the confidence and skills of participants to recognise and respond to the risk of suicide in their communities and workplaces.

This training supports service providers and organisation representatives to enhance their confidence in having conversations about mental health and suicide and building an awareness of where to find help and how to link people to support. The content is based on the latest research in suicide prevention and informed by lived experience.

The training will cover:

  • skills to overcome the barriers that may prevent you from having difficult conversations
  • skills to promote connection and supportive communication
  • practical steps to start a conversation about suicide with someone who may be at risk
  • skills to assess the level of risk and support the person to seek help
  • knowledge about where to find support
  • self-care practices to support your own wellbeing.

This training is free and bookings are essential.
