Invitation to attend PIPS 'Preventing Suicides in Younger People' Training

You are invited to attend our Suicide Prevention and Awareness Training. This training is the only accredited suicide training in the UK and Ireland, therefore participants can gain an OCN Certificate level II.

Venue:    Intercomm, 290-292 Antrim Road, Belfast BT15 5AA

Date:      Tuesday 28th February 2012

Time:      10am - 4pm

This programme helps you identify when a young person is at higher risk of suicide, teaches you how to communicate with them and how to get them linked to the help which is available for a young person with mental health problems. This training is ideal for youth workers & volunteers, GAA & football coaches and anyone who works closely with young people.

Having completed this programme you will have a better understanding of:

  • Why some young people may become suicidal
  • How to identify a young person who may be at a higher risk of suicide
  • Why a young person may not ask for help
  • How to communicate safely and effectively with a young person at risk
  • How to link a younger person to the right support and help

The programme also aims to:

  • reduce the stigma and the myths around the issue of suicide
  •  increase understanding of Government suicide prevention strategies
  •  increase awareness of the extensive support available to those at risk of suicide
  • develop a clearer understanding of the different groups who may be at higher risk of suicide
  •  help participants identify warning signs that a person may be at risk of suicide
  • develop an understanding that many people who are at risk will not access the help available unless supported in doing so. 
  • deliver our Look-Listen-Link model which guides the participants in how to help lower the risk of a vulnerable person taking their own life
  • Introduce simple ways of developing positive mental health within participants.
