As part of our Aviva Community Fund project, we want to train our local community in mental health awareness and suicide prevention. Our first training course will be “Understanding and Talking About Suicide” run by Papyrus, a national charity dedicated to preventing young suicide.
The course will be held on Sunday 31st January at 2.30pm in the Fentham Hall, and we’ll finish by 6pm. “Understanding and Talking About Suicide” is ideal for those wishing to know more about suicide prevention and includes the following:
- Myths and facts about suicide
- The prevalence of young suicide
- Key facts surrounding mental health and suicide
- Possible contributing factors
- Possible warning signs
- Increasing confidence when speaking about suicide
- Resources and support available
- The importance of self-care and de-briefing
This session is for anyone who wants to find out more about what they can do to identify a young person at risk, and to have conversations about suicide, and we do hope you’ll be able to join us.
There is no charge, but places are limited, so please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a place (or places!).
Please also pass this news on to anyone else who you think might be interested in coming to this training.
Many thanks, Carol & Evan
