About this event

This remote workshop will be delivered over two half-day sessions. First session is on 13th September 2022 and second session is on 15th September 2022 , both sessions are scheduled in the morning between 09:30am – 13:00pm.

One in four frontline collections staff report that they have spoken to at least one customer they seriously believe might be at risk of suicide in the last 12 months – and yet many staff feel unsure about what do in these extremely difficult situations. The Money Advice Trust has partnered with the National Centre for Suicide Prevention Education and Training, to deliver a course tailored to customers of financial services companies. Our programme equips frontline staff with the skills and confidence to intervene. The focus is on immediate safety, not fixing problems or trying to deliver therapeutic interventions. The skills we teach can be mastered by anyone.
