SafeTALK Session To Discuss Suicide Awareness

Free sessions to focus on recognising warning signs & preventing suicide

Crowle Colts JFC and North Lincolnshire Council are holding a SafeTALK session on Tuesday October 25 that focuses on suicide awareness.

Mental health has received increased media attention in recent years, which has ranged from positive management of mental health to the statistics illustrating the growing number of people accessing mental health services from the likes of the NHS. This includes care for those with anxiety and depression, as the latter could lead to patients suffering from suicidal thoughts.

This SafeTALK course will outline how you could help to prevent suicide by noticing specific warning signs, as well as positively engaging with anyone suffering from depression and introducing them to the local and national services that support anyone who is struggling with managing their mental health.

The training session, which lasts approximately 3.5 hours, includes powerful presentations, audio-visual tools, and skills practice. You will be guided by a skilled and supportive training team, and there will be a community resource present to support the safety and comfort of all attendees. Previous SafeTALK training sessions have been effective for helping those who are suffering in silence, and for educating those who have friends or family that may be suffering, with clear evidence to back this up.

To bring this course to as many people as possible, Public Health are partnering with The Angel (Brigg), CROWLE Colts Football Club and Crowle Pavilion to ensure that local community members and organisations can capitalise on this crucial opportunity. However, places are limited, so those that are interested are encouraged to book their place as early as possible.

The SafeTALK session will be held at Crowle Pavilion, Windsor Park, Godnow Road, Crowle, DN17 4EE, on Tuesday October 25 from 6pm until 9.30pm.

To book your place on this course, please email Elizabeth Borrill on The email request should include your name, the date of the training, your email address and telephone number, your organisation and your role at the company.
