Training Opportunities in Suicide Prevention

Glasgow City is part of the national suicide prevention programme and action plan , to reduce and prevent suicide in Scotland. The training we promote in Glasgow is SafeTALK, ASIST and SuicideTALK.

COVID-19 - as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, face to face training has currently been suspended. We hope to have face to face training reinstated later in the year and will post the booking form once this is available.

Whilst face to face training is not currently available the Suicide Prevention Training Group in Glasgow has identified some suicide prevention E learning modules for staff and volunteers who support people in serious distress. For further information on these options please email stewart.moore@glasgow.gov.uk

Ask, Tell, Save a Life - Awareness Sessions

From August until December 2021, you can take part in the Ask, Tell, Save a Life awareness sessions. 

These sessions have been developed to support discussions and awareness-raising about mental health, self-harm and suicide prevention. By using animations developed by Public Health Scotland and having some discussion, we will address some of the barriers to talking about these issues so that people can support and be supported to have compassionate conversations when they are struggling in order to access help if needed.
