- Free online Suicide Prevention Training – Developed by the Zero Suicide Alliance – A 20 minute online training, which aims to; enable people to identify when someone is presenting with suicidal thoughts/ behaviour, to be able to speak out in a supportive manner, and to empower them to signpost the individual to the correct services or support.
- Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) – Delivered by Norwich & Central Norfolk Mind. An accredited two day, interactive training that prepares caregivers to provide suicide first aid interventions.
- Suicide Prevention Workshop – Delivered by Norwich & Central Norfolk Mind. The half day workshop explores the issue of suicide and how we can provide initial help to someone who is suicidal.
