Would you know how to help someone at risk of suicide?

Today (Friday) is World Suicide Prevention Day and we’re encouraging everyone to so some free suicide prevention training from the Zero Suicide Alliance.

We joined the alliance earlier this year, a collaboration of NHS trusts, charities, businesses and individuals who are all committed to suicide prevention.

Suicide is a tragedy but it’s also preventable.

The training aims to help people have conversations with friends and family about suicide, to be able to speak to them in a supportive way and signpost them to the correct services or support.

It takes about 20 minutes to do and can be accessed at any time on your smartphone, tablet or computer.

We hope that 10,000 people across the Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire region will sign up.

You can also find details of free mental health training courses in North Somerset by visiting the Eventbrite website.
