IN PARTNERSHIP with the University of Portsmouth, the city council’s Public Health team will be running free suicide alertness training for employees. 

SafeTALK is a half-day session that prepares anyone 15 or older, regardless of prior experience or training, to become a suicide-alert helper. Trained helpers can recognise the signs that someone might be having suicidal thoughts and can connect them with life-saving interventions.

The training will take place on September 30 between 1.30pm and 4pm. There are 20 spaces available.
