Suicide Alertness Training
We have been asked by the Regional Mental Health Resource Officer For Suicide Prevention for Cork and Kerry at the HSE office for Suicide Prevention, to share some information with you with regards to some upcoming FREE online training in the area of suicide alertness.
The link below contains the access information for Schools Personnel/Parents/Guardians in Kerry to register for a 90 minute FREE online START training in suicide alertness.
The training is available to anyone over the age of 18 years of age – and so all school staff (not just teachers) can register for this training as can the children’s/young people’s parents/guardians. Please feel free to share this information with your school community.
This START training helps participants to identify people who are at risk, confidently ask them about the topic of suicide and connect them with resources that can help them stay safe. The programme uses a mix of guided online content, video and interactive questions. You can pause and recommence the programme at your own convenience. On average the programme will take one hour 30 minutes to complete, but you can work at your own pace.
All the information on the START training itself and all the support services information is available for download on the booking site via these links:
