Online Training:

Talking about Suicide: Ten Tools


working in partnership with:

Working in partnership with suicide prevention charity Olly's Future, in March 2020 we transferred our 90-minute training session onto Zoom, and since then have delivered it to over 500 people around the world.

Talking about Suicide: Ten Tools is safe and sensitive. Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.

  • Unique lockdown-based example conversations

  • Engaging, interactive training delivery

  • Learn 10 practical tools to give you confidence to help someone you are worried about, who might be thinking of suicide. These are skills that can save a life.

  • Created and delivered by experienced specialists

  • Open to everyone: no prior training needed

  • Pay what you can: 100% of donations to Olly's Future

Why is this training needed?

Given the potentially devastating impact of the events of 2020 on our collective and individual mental health, training like this is more needed now than ever. 

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?"


This training address fears like this, and blasts away the myths and stigma that still surrounds the subject of suicide.
