Suicide prevention training

The Sheffield Suicide Prevention Steering Group recommends a free 20-40 minutes on-line training resource produced by the Zero Suicide Alliance to raise awareness around this very important issue. The course can be accessed by logging in to Blackboard via MyHallam. Look for the Mental Health section under HROD People Development.
