The Suicide First Aid through Understanding Suicide Intervention (SFAUSI) with Young People course gives learners the knowledge and tools to understand that suicide is one of the most preventable deaths and some basic skills can help someone with thoughts of suicide stay safe from their thoughts and stay alive.
Teaching the theory and practice of suicide intervention skills that can be applied in any professional or personal setting, captured in a 2 half day event accredited by City and Guilds of London. We use only the most experienced suicide prevention trainers to deliver this unique learning experience: for anyone who seeks greater understanding and confidence to intervene with people at risk of suicide.
SFAUSI YP is comprised of 4 parts, each 90 minutes duration. The programme teaches and practices the skills and knowledge needed to identify a young person who may be thinking about suicide and competently intervene to help
create suicide-safety and support with coping, as a first aid approach.
