In early 2020 the world of training, like much of the world in general, moved online in response to COVID-19. Working in partnership with charity Olly's Future, we swiftly transferred our 90-minute session, The Pressure of Success, onto Zoom, revamped and renamed it Talking about Suicide: Ten Tools (TAS10). We have delivered TAS10 to over 1300 people around the world so far. Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and demand for the session is growing, along with our team of trainers.
We can now also deliver the one-day course Suicide First Aid and half-day course Suicide First Aid Lite online. Contact us to enquire.
Created in proud partnership with:

Given the potentially devastating impact of the events of 2020 on our collective and individual mental health, training like this, that removes the fear of having 'difficult' conversations with people we're worried about, is more needed now than ever.
TAS10 - Talking about Suicide: Ten Tools - is accessible, safe and sensitively-delivered with optional gentle interactive elements, and zero pressure or expectation to share anything.
Learn 10 practical tools to talk to someone you are worried about, who might be thinking of suicide.
Unique lockdown-based example conversations
Engaging Zoom delivery by experienced passionate trainers
Created & delivered by specialists with first-hand experience
Open to everyone: no prior training needed
Talking about suicide is our best form of prevention, but fears can get in the way of us starting a conversation:
"What if I say the wrong thing?"
"What if I make things worse?"
"What if I put the idea in their head?"
TAS10 addresses fears like this, and blasts away the myths and stigma that still surrounds the subject of suicide.
Closed Sessions for Organisations
We are being increasingly asked to deliver this training to charities, education and health settings and the corporate/financial sector.
We work with each organisation closely to tailor our training so it is relevant and relatable for their groups.
What our Participants Say:
"This training was brilliant. Particularly on Zoom, the difference between an average training and one that really makes a difference is in the delivery. Rose was clearly comfortable with this topic, able to engage the audience."
Mental Health Nurse, January 2021
"We had never had training before on how to support students who are thinking of suicide. The TAS10 team were able to clearly explain and give examples of appropriate language that may be able to help us improve the outcomes for the young people we work with. This has been invaluable."
High School Pastoral Lead, January 2021
"I have attended a lot of sessions around suicide prevention, and this one is the best. Great teaching approach and sincere trainers."
