Suicide Prevention Awareness Session

Suicide Prevention Awareness session with the City Corporation’s Public Health team, Samaritans and City of London Police, Friday 9 October (9-11am)

“Makes me see how important it is to step in if you see someone who looks like they’re suicidal”

“This is a difficult subject that was communicated with compassion and sensitivity to provide a valuable learning experience”

These quotes come from attendees to previous Suicide Prevention Awareness sessions, hosted by the City Corporation’s Public Health team, in partnership with Samaritans and the City of London Police.

City firms and their workers have an important role to play in local suicide prevention efforts. Recognising this, short, bespoke Suicide Prevention Awareness sessions have been delivered to the local business community on a regular basis over the past four years.These highly interactive sessions are aimed at people working in HR, Facilities or Security in the Square Mile, though they are open to all.

With greatly reduced footfall in the Square Mile as a result of the ongoing pandemic, the upskilling of workers who continue to travel in and out of the City to enable them to intervene if they come across someone in crisis is more important now than ever before.The next Suicide Prevention Awareness session will be held online (via Zoom) on the morning of Friday 9 October (9-11am), making World Mental Health Day. To maintain the highly interactive nature of the session, spaces are limited to 20 and are reserved on a first come, first served basis.
