Choose Life - Training

Choose Life Renfrewshire delivers training in Suicide Awareness and Intervention Skills which is available to community groups and anyone interested in suicide prevention.

Choose Life Renfrewshire work in partnership with Social Work colleagues, NHS, Spark of Genius and RAMH and Kibble to deliver a total of 30 training courses to 545 participants.

The National Target is to reduce the suicide rate between 2002 and 2013 by 20%, supported by 50% of key frontline staff in mental health and substance misuse services, primary care, and accident and emergency being educated and trained in using suicide assessment tools/suicide prevention training programmes by 2010.

Within Renfrewshire we have trained 67% of key frontline staff to 2010, by delivering a range of training courses since the target was introduced.
