Free Community Training – How to Support Someone Who is Feeling Suicidal

People engaging in conversation
We run a number of free courses for Manchester residents (see important note below for exclusions) to help build skills and confidence, delivered by our qualified and friendly Manchester Mind trainers. In this session we look at how to support someone who is feeling suicidal.

This two and a half hour course will include:

  • What are suicidal feelings and who is more at risk?
  • How can I help someone with suicidal feelings?
  • What is a support plan?
  • How can I support myself?

“This training has been so helpful, both in my work and personal life. The trainer was very sensitive in making sure everyone felt okay, I’ve learnt new information and the power of just listening.”

This course is running on the following dates:

Thursday 24 November 10am – 12.30pm > > Register your place 

A note from our Trainer, Fran…

My training style is quite informal and I aim to promote an open and supportive environment for us all.

Having experienced anxiety and depression myself, I do understand some of the worries and concerns that you might have about attending, so if there is anything I can do to help ensure that your experience with us a positive one, please let me know.
