This session differs from the formal Spot the Signs Youth Suicide Prevention course as it is a short-format overview of the campaign. It covers prevention techniques in less detail than the formal training course and is therefore suitable for youth professionals and community based non-mental health trained organisations.
By the end of the session attendees will be expected to:
- Have a broad awareness of suicide
- Have an understanding of risk factors and warning signs
- Have a basic understanding of responding to suicidal behaviours
- Know where and when to signpost for additional support
The course was very well planned, the presenter worked at a good pace, alongside the co-host, I felt this kept the audience engaged and active.”
