Suicide is the biggest killer of young people in the UK. At increased risk: disabled children and young people; those who are excluded and feel isolated from society including through autism, mental health or other special needs. This half-day workshop is aimed at practitioners who come into regular contact with young people but who aren’t their main carers. It teaches the signs that a young person is thinking of suicide and ways of responding.
The course is led by professionals from Papyrus – the national charity dedicated to preventing young suicide. It takes place 10.30am to 1.30pm on Thursday 17 October at free@last in Nechells B7 5PR. The course is supported by Dens of Equality and free@last. Places are available for £30 to Children’s Quarter members and supporters and £40 to others.
