Open Minds Alliance CIC is a not-for-profit organisation formed to develop and deliver training packages for a range of sectors, including healthcare, social care, statutory bodies and communities. These include 'Connecting with People' a bite-size suicide awareness and prevention package. We have since developed resources and training for young people, different types of professionals and the wider community.
Connecting with People is evidence-based training in suicide and self harm prevention. It aims to increase empathy, reduce stigma and enhance participants’ ability to compassionately respond to someone who has suicidal thoughts or following self harm.
We have developed a range of compassionate public education resources with our collaborators for the Royal College of Psychiatrists. To download these resources, please visit our publications page here.
