Training

Suicide Prevention Training

Anyone can suffer from suicidal thoughts but every one of us can make a difference.

A life is lost through suicide every two hours in the UK but suicidal thoughts and feelings affect thousands of us every single day.

The #TalkSuicide campaign has been created by the Humber, Coast and Vale Health and Care Partnership to reduce the stigma around talking about suicide by raising awareness of free suicide prevention training available from the Zero Suicide Alliance.

Mental Health Awareness Training

Face to face training is on hold at the moment until we can deliver it safely. We will update this section once we are able to offer dates.

Support in the Workplace

Mental Health and Wellbeing

It's easy to promote health and wellbeing at work. Not only does it help staff be happier, more productive and increase attendance, the business has a better brand image, retention and recruitment.

Encouraging health and wellbeing in the workplace doesn't mean rounding up everyone in the office and going for a jog at lunchtime (unless that's what you all want). Health and wellbeing is lifestyle choices that help us look after ourselves at a physical, mental and emotional level.
