Self Harm and Suicide Prevention eLearning course

You might want to consider if now is the right time for you to take this self-harm and suicide prevention online training course. If in doubt, seek support. Your own well-being should always come first.

Self-harm and suicide are very emotive and sensitive subjects. Sadly there are still stigmas attached to people with mental health needs and there are still myths about why people self-harm or choose to take their own life. The impact on people who self harm and their families can last a lifetime and the impact of suicide on family, friends and carers can be immense.

If you are personally affected by self-harm or suicide or you are feeling particularly emotional right now, please make sure you seek support for your own wellbeing.

This online training course has been designed specifically for Care and Support Workers working in a social care setting. It may also be useful to a wider audience of people who would like to know more about Self Harm and Suicide.We offer our courses for your LMS as SCORM files. Depending on the scope of what you need there may be a charge for this. Please connect to discuss it with us.
