Free Suicide Awareness Training from Suicide Down to Zero

Local charity, Suicide Down to Zero works to raise funds for and awareness surrounding mental health issues that can lead to suicide.

The charity offers free Suicide Awareness training and we wanted to share with you some of the signs to look out for that can help identify whether someone is at risk of taking their own life, as outlined by the organisation.

  • They talk about feeling trapped, not seeing a way out of a situation, not seeing the point of living or wanting to die
  • They have experienced stressful life events or significant losses that they don’t appear to be coping with
  • They give away prized possessions
  • They exhibit marked changes in behaviour, appearance or mood; they may seem distracted, sad or distant
  • They have made a previous suicide attempt
