Mental health courses
A helpful introduction to Mental Health for our year 10’s. It’s given them some pointers to know how to look after their mental health and why.Introduction to Mental Health participant
I feel like I understand so much more about mental health and mental illnesses like depression, and how to support someone emotionally.Exploration of Mental Health participant
I feel really confident about supporting my colleagues at work now when they come to talk to me about how they feel. I feel like i’ve got the right tools and don’t worry about what to say.Mental Health First Aid Participant
The trainer was brilliant at explaining self-harm in a sensitive way and why it’s so important to talk about it with someone doing it.Introduction to Self-Harm participant
I didn’t realise the difference between self-harm and suicide until now. I would never have broached the topic of suicide with someone who self-harms before, but now I understand why it’s so necessary. This will change our approaches with our clients for the better.Self-Harm Alert participant
This workshop was really insightful. I learnt things about self-harm I had no idea about before. I always thought the best thing to do with one of our young people who we found to be self-harming, would be to immediately take everything away and try to stop them. I now understand how dangerous that could be and why it’s better to support them find alternative coping strategies that work for them. Thank you.Self-Harm Alert Participant
Suicide Prevention Courses
I always thought suicide wasn’t something that was spoken about, because it didn’t really happen. The trainer helped us see how common thoughts of suicide are and why it’s ok to talk about it.suicideTALK participant
Quite nervous about attending this training due to my own experiences, but the trainer was very sensitive and caring and showed how much learning we can take from our experiences that can help another person.Suicide Alert participant
I have noticed that I feel much more confident in following the pathway. I have felt more confident in dealing with students who present with suicidal thoughts. It is something that I do deal with a lot but having the guidance there really helps and also to talk about the training and be open about it.ASIST participant – Three months after attending
The TALK steps are brilliant. I feel so confident about asking about suicide now. Before I would have dismissed the signs, thinking it probably wouldn’t be that bad. But even if it isn’t, I now know it’s always ok to check about suicide, just incase.safeTALK participant
A great idea to have the pre-course material. fantastic work booklet. good use of format and videos. a FANTASTIC course!!ASK Workshop participant
The young people I have screened fair much better. They trust that they have someone to talk to who understands them in a way others don’t. they have improved self-esteem. Even if they become stuck again they know/feel they have someone they can talk to.ASK Workshop Participant – Three months after attending
Training for the workplace
A full day that has really prepared us all to support each other and other colleagues. We now know exactly what to do if faced with a member of staff feeling suicidal, or if we lose a member of staff to suicide. Thank you so much for providing such an empowering workshop.Responding to Suicide in the Workplace participant
Thank you for the course. I hope we never have an employee who considers suicide, but if we do, I don’t feel scared about talking to them, I know I’ll listen and what steps I can take to help them.Responding to Suicide in the Workplace participant
Thank you for this insightful overview of mental health, I feel like I understand it a lot better and what I can be aware of amongst my colleagues. I also really enjoyed the character activity!Mental Health in the Workplace participant
