This is a half-day Suicide Awareness training course from the Association for Psychological Therapies, a UK leading provider of courses for professionals working in mental health and related areas. We bring this APT-Accredited training to your own organisation, for maximum cost-effectiveness, and up to 15 people can attend.
This short course is designed to raise your awareness of the importance of suicide and inform you about some of the key questions. Specifically:
Professionals who sometimes see people who are at risk of suicide, whether in residential facilities, outpatient facilities or in the community.
Note: the age of the people you see is immaterial, it is a fallacy that it is 'mainly young men' who take their own lives.
Equally on gender, although some people make the point that about three times as many men than women end their own lives in the UK, it is still the case that a substantial number of women do so every year.
Each delegate will be registered as having attended the course and receive a certificate to this effect.
Option 1: Exclusive Live Webinar (for groups):
This course can be provided as a live webinar for groups. A webinar typically takes slightly less time than the live course on which it is based (because of less group discussion and group exercises) but they are live and pleasingly interactive. Click here to view prices.
Delegates can be anywhere that is conducive to concentrating, all together or separate, so long as they have access to a computer with a good internet connection. And as a manager, you have ‘guaranteed completion’: you only pay for delegates who successfully complete (minimum 15).
Option 2: Bring the course to your organisation:
We bring this half-day course to your own organisation for a fixed, all-inclusive fee of £1,280 plus VAT and up to 15 people can attend.

Option 3: 'Train the Trainer':
If you or a colleague are a senior professional (e.g. consultant psychologist) and have a talent for communication and teaching, then you are welcome to apply to become an APT-accredited tutor. You could then tutor the course - or your chosen modules from it - in your own organisation, under license.
This is not only a highly appropriate use of senior professionals, but it also saves your organisation the tutor-component of the fee (around 50%) each time you run it or your chosen modules.
