Suicide Prevention Awareness Training, with Samaritans

Back by popular demand, the City of London Corporation’s Business Healthy is running another suicide prevention awareness training session, on the morning of Thursday 4th October, 8:30 to 10:30am. This session is delivered in partnership with City of London Police, led by Samaritans and supported by Clifford Chance.

This succinct, workshop provides key insights into suicide prevention, as part of the wider agenda on addressing poor mental health. It offers opportunities to pick up practical tips, such as listening skills and how to support and signpost colleagues, friends and family who may be struggling with their mental health. The session is interactive and also offers opportunities to share ideas with representatives from other local employers.

Relevant to everyone- particularly those with HR, health and wellbeing, security or facilities as part of their remit – the workshop offers opportunities to share best practice and to learn from other local businesses and also to network.

Speakers include:

  • Will Skinner, Central London Samaritans
  • Karen Gill, Central London Samaritans

Places are limited and are reserved on a first come, first served basis. For more information and to book a place, please visit the Eventbrite page here.
