Norfolk Suicide Prevention Learning Event

Suicide is not inevitable; Suicide prevention is everyone’s responsibility.  Every life lost to suicide is a tragedy with far reaching effects.  But suicide is not inevitable and we can all play a part in tackling this issue together. This event is being held on Tuesday 12th September (9:30-16:15) held at The Space, Roundtree Way, Norwich, NR7 8SQ.

Norfolk has a higher than average rate of suicide, at 12.4 per 100,000 people compared to the England average of 10.2 per 100,000.  The Norfolk suicide prevention strategy and action plan 2016-20 commits county partners to the ambition of reducing suicides.  
 
The event is for anyone working with vulnerable adults or young people where suicide is a risk, and aims to equip them with the skills, knowledge and confidence to support those affected by suicide, with a focus on prevention. 

This event is being staged as part of Safeguarding Adults Awareness Week - a free multi-agency suicide prevention learning event bringing together a range of county-wide developments linked into the Norfolk Suicide Prevention Strategy 2016-20.  
 
The event aims to equip those working with vulnerable adults and children in Norfolk with the skills, knowledge and confidence to support those affected by suicide, with a focus on prevention.  A variety of resources will be showcased, including locally developed tools and guidance, and a diverse range of knowledge, skills and experience shared so we can all work better together to support all those affected by suicide in Norfolk.
