About this Event

Course overview

The Suicide First Aid through Understanding Suicide Intervention course gives learners the knowledge and tools to understand that suicide is one of the most preventable deaths and some basic skills can help someone with thoughts of suicide stay safe from their thoughts and stay alive.

The course has been accredited by City & Guilds of London and participants can pay an additional £85, upon completion, to attain 6 NQF credits at level 4. This is not compulsary but is highly recommended.

The course is comprised of 4 parts, delivered virtually. The programme teaches and practices the skills and knowledge needed to identify someone who may be thinking about suicide and competently intervene to help create suicide-safety as a first aid approach.

Learning outcomes:

Suicide behaviour: reasons and magnitude of the community health problem.

Role of the carer in managing suicide interventions: different roles with different people.

Understand approaches and process of suicide intervention including desired outcomes.

Understand the importance of self-reflection and personal impact when working with suicide and people at risk.

Cancellation policy

The booking price covers administrative fees and as such is non-refundable. In the event that you cannot attend, please provide the details of anyone who you would like to attend in your place.

Dates can be changed 14 days in advance.

I will consider any cancellation request for compassionate grounds on a case by case basis.

Places are in demand, please only book when you are certain you can attend.

If you are no longer able to attend, please contact

Pre-training requirement

No previous experience or training is necessary. Participants will be asked to self-reflect and empathise with a person having thoughts of suicide. There is no expectation of participants to share their personal experiences.

Please be aware that this course is not aimed to be therapy or counselling. I will be happy to signpost if this is required.

I hope you are able to join the community of people who want deaths by suicide to be a thing of the past.

Post Training Requirement
