Suicide Prevention Awareness for those working with Young People (One Croydon Training)

Wednesday 15 May 2024
10:30 to 12:30

Suicide prevention is everyone’s concern and we can all learn how to have open, honest conversations and break down the stigma.

This course will give adults who work and care for young people, the skills and knowledge they need to start a conversation with someone who they believe is at risk.

This session 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 training is part of the One Croydon Training programme which is aimed at Croydon's frontline workforce (statutory, health, and voluntary sector) colleagues and will be of particular interest to youth workers, faith groups (volunteers, mentors, befrienders), social prescribers, health and social care staff who support young people.

Please note this Awareness session is the first step in building confidence when talking about suicide and is around general awareness - for those who might have more extensive knowledge it could be a refresher.

Also, although there are no disturbing slides or images in the presentation itself, the topic itself can be emotive for some people so we would advise if possible that participants have a person in their team to speak to if they are affected.
