Self Harm and Suicide Prevention and Awareness

The suicide rate for men in England and Wales is at its highest rate in two decades. With an ‘alarming’ rise in self-harm also reported in England, it is clear that raising awareness and support around these issues is vital.

The Level 2 Certificate in Self-harm and Suicide Awareness and Prevention qualification has been designed to examine all areas surrounding these sensitive topics. Learners will discover how to recognise the signs of self-harm and suicidal thoughts, as well as how to approach an individual they believe is experiencing this. They will look at managing and minimising self-harm risk, and finally, how to support individuals dealing with grief after suicide
