Suicide Prevention with PAPYRUS
Cost - £25+VAT for members & non-members
Suicide is the biggest killer of people aged 35 and under in the UK. We believe that suicide is often preventable.
Safeguarding Network has commissioned this training to be delivered by PAPYRUS. Prevention of Young Suicide (PAPYRUS) is the UK charity dedicated to the prevention of suicide and the promotion of positive mental health and emotional wellbeing in young people.
PAPYRUS was founded in 1997 by a group of bereaved parents, who had each lost children to suicide. Their founding parents shared core beliefs that suicide is preventable, and that those of us with lived experience of suicide have a valuable and unique contribution to make to the wider conversation around suicide.
Aims and objectives:
The key objectives are:
- To understand the prevalence and impact of suicide
- To explore the language, and the challenges, when talking openly about suicide
- To recognise the ‘signs’ that may indicate someone is having thoughts of suicide
- To consider how we can all contribute to a suicide-safer community.
What you need to know to attend:
The course will be delivered in one 1.5 hour session.
