Wednesday 12 June 2024
10:30 to 12:00

Suicide Prevention Awareness for AdultsSuicide is a serious public health issue and is the leading cause of death of people under the age of 35 and the biggest killer of men under 50. Suicide prevention is everyone’s concern and we can all learn how to have open, honest conversations and break down the stigma.

This session is for Croydon's frontline workforce (NHS, statutory and voluntary sector) who are supporting adults in the community to have the knowledge and confidence to start these difficult but essential conversations.

This sessions aims to:

  • Increase participant's understanding of suicide by debunking myths
  • Provide guidance around the language to use when talking about suicide
  • Gain more confidence supporting someone who may be suicidal including knowing how to ask directly about suicide and signpost to support

This will be of particular interest to food banks, community hubs, social prescribers, health and social care staff, council staff, social workers, volunteers, befrienders, and faith groups.

This training is part of the One Croydon Training programme, which is for Croydon's frontline workforce (statutory, health, and voluntary sector) colleagues.
