This is a 1 day course in Bristol (you come to us).

Training will be delivered face-to-face with Covid-safety measures and clear guidance in place.

If for any reason the course cannot be delivered face-to-face, we will take a flexible and responsive approach to keep people learning by delivering the training on the same day as a live interactive online session or transferring bookings to the next available dates.


Course overview

Drawing on lived experience, feedback and evidence based guidance, develop your awareness and identify good practice in responding to individuals who self harm and individuals who have thoughts of suicide.

Gain information about self harm, background factors and functions, and consider implications for support. Recognise what is different about self harming behaviour and suicide intent, and where there is a connection related to risk.

Develop approaches to engaging with individuals who have thoughts of suicide to promote their safety, and reflect on the support needs of workers responding to people in crisis.
