Suicide is the leading cause of death in men and women aged under 45 in England. Suicide is a preventable death. Suicide is indiscriminate and can touch any of us.

Our Suicide Awareness Hub is here to offer training, support and education on what we can do. Suicide is everyone business and therefore as a society we can do our best to provide comfort and support to people who are feeling suicidal.

The key feature of our Suicide Awareness Hub is a FREE workshop:

  • To give you the confidence to have supportive conversations with people who are feeling suicidal, enabling them to access the help they need.

This is the best training I have ever been on.

Generally we rarely talk about suicide, it’s often only when we hear about or know someone who has died do we talk about it. These conversations are usually brief as people may feel talking about suicide is still stigmatised.

It was a great workshop with useful tips. I also feel that our trainer was super engaging and helped the group really relax and opened up interesting discussions.

There are some understandable concerns people have about talking to someone who may be feeling suicidal that prevent them from starting the conversations.

Worries such as “If I ask them if they are feeling suicidal, that will put the idea into their minds, they will go and make an attempt and it’ll be my fault” (this isn’t true, if someone says yes, they will have been thinking about it before and you are not responsible for their actions) or “If I ask them and they say they are feeling suicidal I won’t know what to do next” (you will after attending our course).

This workshop empowers you to trust your gut feelings and enables you to have supportive conversations with someone who is feeling suicidal.
