Suicide Crisis team

Our new volunteers started training with us this week. They’re receiving a package of training over the summer months, starting with a training course that Gloucestershire College is formulating and providing especially for us . Next month Bristol Mind provide training in SafeTALK (identifying suicidal thoughts), and our charity’s advising psychiatrist provides training sessions on the subject of suicidality and mental health issues . In the late summer and early autumn volunteers will be training in ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training).
