Suicide First Aid
Understanding Suicide Intervention.
Suicide has to be one of the most preventable deaths.
Talking or even listening to somebody talk about suicide can be scary, and sadly many folk think that asking a person if they’re thinking about suicide it may plant the idea in their head, this is a myth.
Join Mind Canyon on the 4th and 5th of March as we teach the theory and practice of suicide intervention skills that can be applied in any professional or personal setting, captured in a one-day event accredited by City and Guilds of London.
The UK’s only externally accredited suicide prevention programme, on the Regulated Qualification Framework, this is the UK’s National Qualification in Suicide Prevention.
