National lockdown: Stay at home

Suicide prevention community training

Did you know that two thirds of people who die by suicide haven't accessed any mental health support? 

That's why, we need people like you, people already in our communities, to be more aware of the signs someone is at risk of suicide and able to help them get the support they need.

We're offering individuals and not-for-profit clubs, groups and organisations, who are active in our communities, a limited number of fully funded places on our suicide prevention training. 

The training will help you gain the skills and confidence you need to help someone who is at risk of suicide.

Developed by North Staffordshire Mind, the half-day online training course has been designed to:

  • Help you recognise signs that someone may be at risk 
  • Train you to use a simple 4 step suicide intervention
  • Share information with you about local support services

If you're interested in the training and would like to apply for a fully funded place, please complete an expression of interest form to help us gauge demand and allocation of places.

We expect the training to be popular and places are limited, please submit your form as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
