About this event

The session is delivered live on Zoom by a professional trainer. It was created by Olly's Future (registered charity no. 1187184) and Start the Conversation.

Who should attend this training?

Anyone who works with the public in Adur and Worthing, including:

  • Bartenders, waiters and hotel staff
  • Barbers and hairdressers
  • Foodbank volunteers or other frontline support worker
  • Charity shop volunteers
  • Parks and foreshore staff
  • Taxi drivers and bus drivers
  • Car park attendants, traffic wardens
  • Pharmacists

As the eyes and ears of our community, here’s your chance to learn how to help prevent a suicide through a caring conversation. This FREE short online training is for you.

Why should I attend?

The Samaritans estimate that 1 in 20 people is thinking of suicide at any time. That means if your job involves talking to people, you could come across someone who is struggling to cope.

In just 90 minutes, learn ten tools and the confidence to start a conversation with someone you're worried about. You could save their life.

You don’t need to have all the answers – just a willingness to want to help.

The pandemic has taken its toll on all of us. And that's why these ten tools for talking about suicide are more needed now than ever. Anyone can learn these life-saving skills.

What will I learn?

You'll learn to put aside common fears that can get in the way of starting a conversation, such as:

  • "What if I say the wrong thing?"
  • "What if I make things worse?"
  • "What if I ask about suicide and put the idea in their head?"

You'll also learn to talk about suicide with confidence, including:

  • What is 'healthy' vs 'unhealthy' language around suicide?
  • How, why and when should I ask someone if they are thinking about suicide?
  • How do I listen without trying to fix their problems - and why is this important?

Will I have to talk?

There is zero pressure to talk or share your experiences; many people attend our training simply to observe and learn.

To ensure you feel safe and relaxed, Rob or Craig will be online to help you with any IT problems, and one of our professional Emotional Support team will be available to offer personal help.
