The PABBS training was not only perfectly structured and highly informative but also gave me practical knowledge in understanding and communicating with those bereaved by suicide – all supported with valuable and current research. Although, considered a highly emotive and taboo subject, both Sharon and Andrea approached us as learners sensitively, with consideration of our own experiences in mind and I left feeling inspired by the team. A highly recommended training to anyone working with those affected or bereaved by suicide.
The COVID-19 protocols were well thought out and executed. I felt very comfortable wearing a mask whilst moving around the room and not when sat at the desk. The only minor improvement I can suggest is providing hand sanitisers at each desk. Although, I appreciate hand sanitisers were available at the entrance and they come at a cost. Overall, I felt safe!
Thank you again for a great day and I look forward to the online suicide bereavement conference.
