This filter lets you select only those offers that meet your need, for example if you are looking for face to face training, or Text chats only.
This filter lets you select based on the audience you are trying to reach, the key audience types we cater to are broken down below:
- Anyone - Where we use anyone, we typically mean any adult, unless otherwise specified. Many resources have been designed to support adults who are able to handle some of the sometimes distressing elements of talking about suicide prevention.
- Gatekeepers - Gatekeepers are those professionals who refer into secondary care services, such as mental health services, or social care. These professionals are not necessarily mental health professionals, but they are a key part of the health and social care system and can carry out referrals as opposed to signposting alone. Examples of gatekeepers are social workers, GP's and health visitors.
- Primary school students - In the UK some children start at school from age 4, however for our purposes we tend to use the latter part of primary school (ages 7-11) as the key age for any activity offered within the resources we reference.
- Secondary school students - in the UK Secondary school starts typically at age 12, and continues up to age 16. We use this age range for this audience group.
- College students - Further education colleges can cater for adults from age 16 up, and there are many adult learners pursuing education in this sector throughout the life course. For the sake of these resources we have indicated that this age range would typically be 16- 24, as this is the majority of college students.
- University students - As with Further education colleges, Higher education institutions can offer learning for adults from age 18 up, and many learners are studying well into their 60's and beyond. To reflect this we have indicated this group are 18+.
- Teachers / educators - This group covers all those who are in the education sector, who have a role within formal institutions and as tutors. Educators can be anyone who is involved with education, they teach and inform students from any age group, and they hold a position of influence and duty for the care of those they educate.
- Healthcare professionals - These professionals may be nurses, doctors, allied health professionals or wider roles within the healthcare system. This group have a duty of care to patients and service users and are involved with the health of those they support. As part of this we include acute, community and mental healthcare, along with specialty care such as those in the forensic, older adult and learning disability care sector.
- Wider professionals - This group includes healthcare professionals, teachers / educators and those from police, fire, ambulance, local government and third sector / not for profit sector. This group will offer support for members of the public or people on their case load and will offer social and practical support, as well as specific health or social care support. These people may not be formal gatekeepers, in that they do not refer into secondary care services. Examples of wider professionals are MP's, local council workers, and charity volunteers and staff.
- Workplace - This audience is representative of those who work in many different sectors, and do not ordinarily interact with mental health or wellbeing of others. For this audience most resources are focussed on staff wellbeing and business guides which give them the skills to maintain health and wellbeing within the workplace.
- Family and carers - Family and carers are vital to all of us, whether they have a formal role as a carer in our lives or as loved ones who help us stay connected and support us through tough times. Family and carers are a fundamental part of the informal health economy and often it is these connections that can have an enormous impact on the health and wellbeing of the person they care about.
We currently only break down resource entries into those that have a cost, (whether to commission for an area or audience, or that have a cost to the end user) or are free. In the future we anticipate that we will be able to offer more information on the cost of the resources, although for some cost is determined on a case by case basis.
