STORM - Suicide Prevention Course

Have you ever been in a position when you aren’t sure what to say if someone starts talking about death, and about harming themselves?

Are you concerned that you don’t have much experience in this area, and are not sure what to do if you were to encounter such a situation?

Do you want to be able to help someone - at work or in your personal life - who may want to kill themselves?

These are tough questions, but there are ways to help people who are feeling suicidal and having suicidal thoughts.

The STORM course is an evidenced-based accredited approach that is practical, and applicable to many environments. Once you have attended, you will have:

  • A model of how to assess for suicidal risk
  • Techniques for managing a suicidal crisis
  • Methods to employ to help someone find hope

The course is applicable to staff and volunteers in charities and community groups, from Lambeth and Southwark. If you sign up for the course, you must attend on both days.
