Suicide Prevention Training


Ben Thomas, All Things Business Suicide is killing more people in our country than ever before, and since March many people have been alone and faced challenges they have never come across before, and others that have suffered with daily battles have had their challenges multiplied. At the start of mental health awareness week (18th - 24th May) Robyn Allen, a businesswoman from Northamptonshire, made us aware of a dedi- cated suicide prevention online training programme and, as a com- pany, my colleagues and I committed to completing this, which we have all done. We utilised social media to raise awareness and quickly dozens and dozens of other people from the business communities of Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes did the same. Earlier this year, we partnered with Medigold Health on a #WellingboroughCares campaign, to help raise awareness about mental health to the res- idents of Wellingborough, following an increase in suicides and suicide attempts. –


The video for this campaign can be watched by visiting; www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4E2Oi-CwLY


As a nation, the next pandemic we face is a mental health one, so it is important that we as a community continue to raise awareness, and look out for one another. –


If you would like to be one of the 1+million people that has completed the training, please visit; www.zerosuicidealliance.com/training See. Say. Signpost.


Robyn Allen, Director at Robyn Allen Solutions “As someone who has had their own mental health challenges over the years, helping people to better understand mental health overall is al- ways extremely important to me. Sometimes we have to help ’translate’ for those that can’t speak for themselves yet. I work in an industry where no subject around health, physical or


mental, can be avoided, so I must be able to manage all types of conversa- tion. I honestly thought that meant I was prepared for any conversation, including ones around suicide, but this training proved me wrong. I stum- bled across the training myself while scrolling social media. Te topic caught my eye, then, seeing that it was only 20 minutes encouraged me to get involved. I was only about one or two minutes in when I realised how powerful the Suicide Prevention Training from Zero Suicide Alliance is, and I knew I wanted to make sure more people knew it was available.

community comes together to raise awareness of mental health


We all have a little extra time on our hands right now, so why not use it for something positive that could save a life? Suicide is sometimes considered a taboo subject, but how can we help prevent it if we are not willing to say the word out loud, especially to some- one that may be experiencing difficulties? Being open on all topics and being willing to hold honest discussions can be the biggest support to someone dealing with mental health issues – it was a great support to me when I suffered from anxiety. As usu- al, the local business community and my LinkedIn family came through for me and began to engage, get involved and even share the training themselves. It has been fantastic to see how many people now have the tools to ‘See, Say, Signpost’ if they believe someone to be in distress. I pray we never need to use it, but if we do, we can help.”
