Youth Suicide Prevention & Awareness Training FREE Training across Kent & Medway.

Through a Mind In Kent partnership, we are pleased to be offering FREE Youth Suicide Prevention & Awareness sessions to anyone in Kent and Medway that wants to learn more about how they can support young people when they are in crisis.

This course aims to complement our Adult Suicide Prevention & Awareness training by shifting the focus to the problems and challenges which are most prevalent for our young people today. Read on for a full outline of what this training entails, and how you can book a free space on one of our sessions.

Please note this training isn’t just perfect for people who want to learn more! If you have attended similar training in the past, but would like to refresh your knowledge, then this training is also a great opportunity to do just that.

This three and a half hour, interactive sessions will help people to understand the mental health driver that can cause suicidal thoughts in young people, whilst also helping them to recognise the signs that a young person may be feeling suicidal early on.

The course also provides people with the confidence to support vulnerable young people and reduce the risk of a suicide attempt being made.

We also provide information about the other suicide support services which young people can access in Kent and Medway.

This training is fully funded, so spaces are provided FREE of charge to anyone that wants to improve their knowledge and understanding of this very important subject – all with the aim of helping others. The training will be useful to anyone who may come across a young person (a child, a student, a relative, a member of the public or a stranger) who appears to be struggling with life.

Please book onto any course date/time which suits you.
