SFA Training FAQs

With increasing cases of death by suicide, it is important that we learn how to spot the signs that someone may be considering dying by suicide. Develop the confidence to speak openly about suicide and when to signpost people towards help, which could save their life. Most people who are considering suicide; don’t want to end their lives – they just want the pain to stop. Through raised awareness, good communication and effective support, lives can be saved.
