About the course
Developed with Help for Heroes, the aim of this training is to provide you with practice in handling difficult situations where a person may be at risk of suicide.
Our 30 minute online, interactive training course includes three conversation examples: with a loved one, a colleague and a stranger.
Three video stories are also shared. Two from bereaved friends, and one from a former Army Officer, who talks about his mental health struggles and how a letter from his friends stopped him taking his own life.
