Serious – Suicide Awareness
23/02/2023 9:30 am - 1:00 pm
This training programme is for members of the children and young peoples’ workforce from Liverpool.
This course has been developed by Merseyside Youth Association’s RAISE team, working in partnership with Wirral CAMHS and YPAS.
It has been guided by parents of suicide victims, children and young people’s participation groups and mental health professionals. Its development was funded by the Liverpool CDOP (Child Death Overview Panel) in response to growing concerns about the number of children and young people who look to suicide as the only answer to the difficulties they are facing.
This training has been designed to help professionals working with children and young people to spot the signs of a young person at risk of suicide and, more importantly, to build confidence in professionals to talk openly with young people about suicide
As professionals, we need to realise every young person is at risk. There are certain things we can look out for that will indicate to us that certain young people are particularly vulnerable when it comes to suicide.
This programme will show you how to spot the signs of a young person at risk of suicide and, more importantly, to build confidence in professionals to talk openly with young people about suicide.
There is no cost to attend this course, however, there will be a charge of £5.00 plus P&P, per book for each delegate.
