Testimonials & Feedback
I had no idea how common suicide and thoughts of suicide were. The training was delivered really sensitively with this in mind, and I’m looking forward to implementing some of the ideas we talked about to make this no longer a taboo subject.An Introduction to Suicide participant
The talk was delivered in a safe and sensitive way. i wasn’t sure what would be involved but Alice put us at ease and made sure we knew we didn’t have to do or say anything we didn’t want to, and we could leave at any point. I was shocked by the statistics and it’s inspired me to want to do more to help others at work.An Introduction to Suicide participant
Helped de-bunk myths like talking about suicide can make people want to do it. I knew this already but having an external speaker come in to explain this to my colleagues who weren’t sure will really help them and hopefully we will now talk about it more.An Introduction to Suicide participant
