Glasgow’s Third Sector has a crucial role to play in preventing suicide in this city. This event aims to bring the sector up to speed on national and local prevention strategies, and to give the third sector an opportunity to consider and promote its role. This event is aimed at third sector staff who regularly work with people in serious distress. It will be suitable for front line staff and those working in policy, service development and training.
After the event you will be more aware of national and local suicide prevention strategies, the different levels of suicide training on offer and be able to identify the role your organisation can play in preventing suicide, as well as your organisational training needs.
