Connecting with People training

4 Mental Health’s Connecting with People mental health training programmes are designed to offer a whole organisational approach to improve the response shown to people in distress. The programmes reflect the latest evidence-based principles and best practice.

Connecting with People training is designed to help improve the knowledge, skills and confidence of people coming in contact with others who are in mental distress.

As Connecting with People training is not diagnosis driven it is suitable for a wide audience – not just those working in specialist mental health services. This makes Connecting with People training ideal for use across all sectors and care pathways, its complimentary modules having been designed for different audiences, including for both adults and young people.

The training promotes a role for all in suicide prevention, and ensures this can happen within the competency of individuals. Each of the Connecting with People modules is tailored to a person’s role, experience and training.

The North East and North Cumbria Suicide Prevention Network are offering this training free of charge across the region. Modules are currently being delivered online via Microsoft Teams. Please click through to read more information about each of the sessions available to book below:
