During these unusual times we are unable to offer face to face suicide prevention training (ASIST, safeTALK & suicideTALK).
Until we can recommence this training we would like to highlight the online training offered by the Zero Suicide Alliance (a collaborative of NHS Trusts, businesses and individuals all committed to suicide prevention in the UK). The training has an evidence base and follows the principles of ASIST and Safetalk.
The Zero Suicide Alliance is ultimately concerned with improving support for people contemplating suicide by raising awareness of, and promoting, FREE suicide prevention training which is accessible to all. There are two levels to the training:
Gateway Training that gives those who are interested a taster of how to approach someone who is struggling and takes about 10 minutes.
Advanced Training that takes around 25 minutes to complete and gives the skills and awareness to recognize when someone may be contemplating taking their own life.
