Suicide Prevention Training
Want a one-off workshop for your staff, group or students? Get in touch today and let us know what you want to focus on – we’ll build a workshop around your needs.
Need something on-going? We offer programs to groups who need continuous support or development. Whatever your groups needs are – personal development, debriefing sessions or just a facilitated group space, we can work together to achieve your goals.
Our certified Suicide Response Training is internationally recognised and runs over 5 hours either online or in-person. What makes our training different is how it gets very specific and granular on suicide as an evolving issue. Our training focusses on suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention while also delving into topics like loss & grief, trauma, popular culture, social media and more.

Thought leadership married with education is where real change begins..
More and more organisations are seeking training in the area of mental health and suicide prevention. There are many short and fast training sessions that will tick the boxes on your training check-list. The key though is finding training that can offer value beyond the board room.
Meaningful change begins and ends with the standard of education you give your teams and your organization.
