SCHEMA – An Approach to Suicide Prevention
SCHEMA is a suicide prevention course that supports professionals and community members in effectively helping people with suicidal thoughts.
Suicide doesn’t discriminate
Death by suicide is devastating and far reaching across our communities. It takes 3 times more lives per year in the UK than lives lost in accidents on all our roads. The most recent data tells us that over 5821 people died in the UK by suicide in one year. That means that every day, 16 people take their own lives in the UK.
But we can have an impact on this devastating act through learning skills to support a person with suicidal thoughts to consider life as an achievable plan
This course has been being designed and developed by experienced facilitators and practitioners in the fields of suicide prevention, mental health and well-being.
Who is SCHEMA for?
The SCHEMA suicide prevention course is suitable for all walks of life and this is because suicidal behaviour occurs across all our communities and is everybody’s responsibility. Whatever your background, by attending SCHEMA you will feel better prepared to support someone who has suicidal thoughts.
