Maytree facilitate a comprehensive and engaging training programme in Suicide Awareness.

Our Suicide Awareness training has two levels:

The Level one

The Level one training is geared towards professionals who wish to develop their understanding of suicide or want to learn how to safeguard, identify risk and engage confidently with individuals experiencing suicidal thoughts and feelings. The outcomes for the training are:

  • To explore the link between Mental Health and individuals with additional needs
  • To learn how to engage with individuals experiencing suicidal thoughts and feeling: Using the Maytree ethos

Level two

The Level two training is geared towards professionals with good suicide awareness skills/knowledge and this allows learners to explore factors that affect individuals experiencing mental health and suicidal ideation. This training allows learners to understand the mental health continuum and the impact that suicide has on the community.

The course covers topics including:

  • Facts and Statistics: Suicide, self-harm, stigma and discrimination, depression, psychosis and prevalence and impact of mental ill health in the UK
