In response to Covid-19, we have worked hard and fast, along with suicide prevention training company Start the Conversation, to move our training online. The result is Talking about Suicide: Ten Tools, which is a 90-minute training delivered on Zoom. This can be delivered to all sorts of organisations as well as to individuals.
For further information, please fill out our enquiry form.
We deliver monthly open sessions every first Tuesday of the month, where you donate what you can to Olly’s Future. Please note: we can accept a maximum of two people from each organisation.
Talking about suicide is the best form of prevention, but fears can get in the way of us starting a conversation:
We need to be able to put these misconceptions aside and talk about suicide because:
Suicide prevention training like this is especially relevant and important right now because, of course, we don’t yet know the impact of Covid-19 and the necessary isolation on our collective and individual mental health, and the potential suicides that might result from this situation – not to mention the financial and emotional fallout from it.
Join us online for 90 minutes and learn 10 practical tools to give you the confidence to help someone you are worried about, who might be thinking of suicide. These are skills that can save a life. This training is evidence-based, emotionally-sensitive and ethical. Every consideration has been given to ensure the practical and emotional safety of our attendees.
Please contact us to book a ‘closed’ session for your team or organisation.
