Still sitting on the fence? Well, have a read of these quotes from previous delegates!

"This is an important life skill that everyone should have"

"Very useful - well paced with the right amount of material that was very well presented"

"I think the course covers all bases and provides a solid framework for suicide prevention"

"Really helpful video clips and activities - both trainers very passionate and informed about the subject which showed"

"This is not an area I would have felt comfortable handling before the training - the course has been beneficial"

"Very useful - everyone needs this first level of awareness"

"As a health care professional, despite gaining a degree in paediatric nursing, I was never given training to communicate or help young people with suicidal intentions.  This short course has given me the confidence to listen, ask and signpost individuals who need help"

"I’m so passionate about the training you gave me and really feel it was life changing, not just for me, but anyone I come across who needs the support so THANK YOU for giving me this superpower!"
