FULL DAY PREVENTING SUICIDES IN POLICE COLLEAGUES
This programme is designed to equip participants with basic suicide prevention skills plus more advanced information around supporting a colleague who may be at higher risk. The final part of the programme explains the need to maintain your own mental health – focusing on emotional resilience skills which reduce the risk of developing issues such as depression.
The programme is suitable for anyone who has a need or interest to develop the skills to reduce the risk of suicide in their colleagues, friends, family or self.
HALF DAY PREVENTING SUICIDES IN POLICE COLLEAGUES
This programme was developed to be rolled out across police forces at an operational level allowing the programme to be incorporated in the officers day.
This training will help serving officers to understand the need to protect their own mental health during their career where they are exposed to many traumatic incidents. It also helps reduce barriers that have developed in many police forces that stop officers stepping forward to ask for support around mental health issues.
