Identifying and Talking About Suicide with Children and Young People

Course Title:
Identifying and Talking About Suicide with Children and Young People
Course Code:
Talking about Suicide

Suicide is the biggest killer of young people – male and female – under 35 in the UK. Every year many thousands more attempt or contemplate suicide, harm themselves or suffer alone, afraid to speak openly about how they are feeling. There have recently been a number of deaths of young people by suicide in Kingston and Richmond including Child B in Kingston in 2015.

Please note that if you are booking from Education Services or from outside the Boroughs of Richmond and Kingston there will be a booking fee of £60

This half day training session is delivered by Papyrus the national charity dedicated to the prevention of young suicide.

This training is for multi-agency practitioners who want to increase their awareness about young people and suicide and develop skills for recognising and responding to suicidal behaviour
