HEE and PHE have worked together to create an online e-learning suicide prevention resource, 'We need to talk about suicide'. The resource is aimed at the wider public health workforce and volunteers as an introduction to the subject matter, but not specifically those who work within a mental health setting. Anyone can suffer from mental health issues and by offering this training to staff, it is hoped that they will be better equipped to have life saving conversations both in public, at work and at home.
The resource has been developed with support from a wide range of external partners including the charitable sector, blue light services, academia, experts in mental health and, importantly, people with lived experience, to ensure that it is fit for purpose.
