Connecting with People Courses



Connecting with People is training in suicide and self harm mitigation that has been informed by evidence-based principles . It aims to increase empathy, reduce stigma and enhance participants’ ability to compassionately respond to someone who has suicidal thoughts or following self harm. This programme supports the development of a common language, promoting a more integrated response across statutory services, third sector providers and communities.


The training is available as a set of modules. We deliver these directly to your delegates at a venue of your choice. To develop long-term capability in organisations, we also offer “train the trainer”. Those trained may then offer Connecting with People across a large organisation or cohort.
