Suicide Prevention

Suicide prevention strategy and training

People really do want to talk about it

Most workplaces, organisations or education settings don’t have a Suicide Policy in place.

It can feel like a difficult subject to discuss. It’s a vulnerable topic and can feel scary no matter your position or relationship.

But with suicide being the biggest killer of under 35s in the UK* – we all have a responsibility to reach in and help those at risk.

Does your organisation have a suicide policy in place?

What would you do if an employee, colleague or young person was showing signs of wanting to take their own life?

If you’re not sure… you’re not alone.

Suicide prevention training is most effective when it forms part of a wider strategy on mental health and wellbeing.

That’s why we combine accredited Suicide First Aid courses with pro-active approaches to build policies and processes that work for you.

Creating an open and inclusive culture around mental ill-health, that builds awareness and understanding – so that you’re better informed to approach the topic of suicide with confidence.

“75% of all suicides are male. And in the construction industry men are 3.7 times more likely to die by suicide than the male national average.”

“Suicide rates in females are highest in those aged 45 to 49”
