Substance Misuse and Suicide Prevention Training

Mental health training that you can trust - delivered by experts.

Hull and East Yorkshire Mind is happy to be working alongside The Alcohol and Drug Service to offer up to 180 FREE places on a tailored Substance Misuse and Suicide Prevention Training course.

There is strong evidence that shows that substance misuse and poor mental health can lead to an increased risk of suicide, yet our research has shown that there is no training available for professionals working in this field that helps to raise awareness of this.

Our FREE training session will help to upskill professionals to have the skills and knowledge to identify thoughts of suicide at the earliest opportunity, how to have a conversation about it and know how to support someone in distress. It will also support professionals to discuss drug and alcohol use amongst those who they support to ensure these risk factors are further supported. Our bespoke training will also explore the relationship between substance misuse and suicide, raising awareness of both areas and creating a suicide safer community for all.

Training will be delivered online via Teams and we invite those working in (but not limited to) health screening teams, education, youth offending teams, youth workers, social care workers and those working with vulnerable adults and any other organisations where substance misuse and mental health issues may be present.

The partnership is funded by the Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership Suicide Prevention Programme.

We currently have the following dates and locations available. To book your FREE place, please complete the registration form below and a member of our team will be in touch.
