A LIFE Worth Living… suicide prevention training was developed by Washington Mind originally as an integral part of the NHS South of Tyne and Wear Emotional Health and Well-being Strategy 2010-2020. The Strategy was produced in response to the comprehensive Mental Health Needs Assessment, carried out across South of Tyne and Wear which was published in 2009.
A LIFE worth living… Suicide prevention training is focused upon equipping our community with the knowledge and skills to reduce the pain for those of us experiencing suicidal thoughts.
There are many myths about suicide, get the facts… attend the training.
A LIFE Worth Living half day training sessions are available for people living, working and volunteering in the Sunderland, South Tyneside and Gateshead localities who wish to increase their knowledge, skills and confidence with regard to suicide prevention, to offer support and information with the aim of saving lives. The training is also available in Redcar and Cleveland as well as the North Staffordshire areas. Please contact local Minds in these localities for further information.
