Zero Suicide Alliance
The Zero Suicide Alliance (ZSA) is a collaboration of National Health Service trusts, charities, businesses and individuals who are all committed to suicide prevention in the UK and beyond. We are an alliance of people and organisations coming together around one basic principle:
Suicide is preventable
The ZSA is ultimately concerned with improving support for people contemplating suicide by raising awareness of, and promoting, FREE suicide prevention training which is accessible to all
here are two levels to our training:
– Gateway Training that gives those who are interested a taster of how to approach someone who is struggling and takes about 10 minutes.
– Advanced training that takes around 25 minutes to complete and gives you the skills and awareness to recognise when someone may be contemplating taking their own life.
The aims of this training are to: enable people to identify when someone is presenting with suicidal thoughts/behaviour, to be able to speak out in a supportive manner, and to empower them to signpost the individual to the correct services or support.BACK
