Event description

Description

Suicide is the biggest killer of men under the age of 45.

After a reaching a 25 year low in 2007, suicide is on the rise once again.

Austerity has devastated much of our voluntary and community service sector, just as the people that depend on those services - our most vulnerable members of society - need them the most.

Service providers are particularly exposed to this crisis, which affects people from all walks of life. What can be done when a service user tells you, out of the blue, they are having thoughts of ending their own life?

Maytree Suicide Awareness and Prevention Training is aimed at frontline service providers and delivers vital guidance on how to handle a suicidal disclosure.

This important training takes place over one afternoon and covers the following topics:

  • Suicide: myths and facts
  • Suicide: risk assessment
  • Suicide: warning signs
  • How to: make an intervention
  • Plus: active listening skills

By the end of the training, you will have more confidence to handle a suicidal disclosure in your service delivery setting. You will learn what to say, what not to say, and who to turn to for advice.

This training is available free of charge to anyone that works or volunteers for any statutory or third sector voluntary organisation in Camden, Islington, Hackney or Haringey (maximum 2 per organisation).

Unfortunately, due to funding limitations, this training is not currently available to anyone outside of those four boroughs.

Please be advised that this event will be held on the first floor and that the venue does not have lift access. We apologise for any inconvenience but warmly encourage applicants with mobility difficulties to contact the organisor.
