Background to suicide prevention training
Implementing training for local needs forms part of the local action plans. This includes training around self harm, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and emotional literacy.
Over 30,000 people from backgrounds including voluntary, social work, education, mental health and NHS have been trained in suicide alertness and intervention. This is 1 in 150 of the population in Scotland. A network of over 500 suicide prevention trainers deliver training across Scotland.
