Anyone can have thoughts of suicide. Everyone can learn to help.
Training forms a significant part of preventing suicides in Scotland. By training a proportion of the population, more skilled and confident helpers could be available to explore thoughts of suicide and intervene. The National Suicide Prevention Programme offers suicide prevention training covering awareness and exploration to suicide first aid skills. Courses are organised and delivered at a local level by qualified trainers.
Using the search box below you will find training courses open to the public. More information can be found on the range of training courses offered by NHS Health Scotland here.
If you are unable to find a course, please contact your local suicide prevention lead who will be able to advise you on training in your area.
We are always keen to hear from organisations that are interested in getting involved or want to start training. You can email us on: email@example.com
