Suicide and Self-Harm Awareness Course – Southend

21st September 2019 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

This suicide and self-harm awareness course in Southend is for anyone who is interested in mental health or worried about a friend, loved one or employee.

This special 2 hour presentation marks the end of a year long series of 30 free training events held by South East and Central Essex Mind, across the Southend and Chelmsford areas looking at Suicide and Self Harm Awareness, provided through funding from Awards for All.

Unlike the original sessions this event will look at both of these subject areas side by side, delivered by our excellent training team, who together have many years experience working actively in Mental Health counselling and service provision.

Participants will explore:
– The difference between suicidal thoughts and intentions and discuss self harm
– Causes of suicidal feelings and underlying factors around self harm
– What you can do to help
– What you should do in an emergency
– How you can support yourself

The event will also include a special viewing of a short edit from the award-winning mental health awareness film ‘Life After’, created by local film makers Lliam Coker and Ben Lettieri.

We are excited at the prospect of delivering this event at the Performance Pod at South Essex College and it would be great to fill every one of the 250 seats.

Unfortunately this session is not funded, so we are asking for a suggested donation of £1 against each ticket reservation, to cover some of our costs.

Please note with the exception of bottled water, food and drink are not allowed in the POD venue.
