Children & Young People Suicide Awareness & Prevention workshops

Various dates online via Zoom – FREE

This free training is open to anyone in Kent and Medway who is interested in the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people. This includes people who work or volunteer with children and young people, as well as individuals / parents who want to learn more about how to support them in a personal capacity.

Interested? Here’s what some of our recent course participants had to say:

“The course was well delivered and was a very supportive group in which to explore understanding and express concerns in a non-judgemental way.”

“Anxiety & Depression can affect everyone differently, and being able to understand that impact is so important, especially when working in a role where it is very common. This training helped me understand the early signs and triggers better and will help me to use it to help others”
