West Essex Suicide Awareness Hub
Suicide is the leading cause of death in men and women aged under 45 in England. Suicide is a preventable death. Suicide is indiscriminate and can touch any of us.
Our Suicide Awareness Hub is here to offer training, support and education on what we can do. Suicide is a societal issue and therefore as a society we need to know how to respond and where to get help.
So what do we do?
The Hub will give you the skills and confidence to be an informed friend for someone who is at risk of ending a short term problem with a long term solution.
We have a FREE workshop consisting of two 2 hour sessions (virtually for now). These cover:
- About suicidal feelings
- Risk factors
- Why suicide
- How to help
On completion of the 2 workshops you will receive continued online follow up support sessions:
- Informal (a chance to offload)
- Formal 1:1 support
You will have access to our online Training Academy where you will find a range of additional courses and peer support.
Course 1: Jan 21st & 28th Thursday evenings 7-9pm
Course 2: March 8th & 15th Mondays 10am-12pm
