Suicide Prevention & Awareness - Free 3-hour courses aiming to prevent suicide and increase awareness about preventive measures.


Maidstone and Mid-Kent Mind are pleased to offer FREE Suicide Prevention & Awareness training sessions to anyone in Kent and Medway.

This 3 hour, interactive session will help people recognise the signs that someone may be feeling suicidal; as well as giving people the confidence to support them and reduce the risk of a suicide attempt being made. It will also highlight the support services that are available in Kent and Medway.

This training is fully funded, so spaces are being provided FREE of charge to anyone that wants to improve their knowledge and understanding of this very important subject. The training will be useful to anyone who may come across someone (a friend, a family member, a colleague, a member of the public, a stranger) who appears to be struggling with life – in short it will be useful to everyone!

We currently have a number of courses arranged, with new dates being released regularly. To book a place on any of these courses please get in touch via the below details:
