Lisa Furneval, Cumbria, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust
‘My name is Lisa and I took part in the PABBS training on the 3rd May. I have been a mental health professional for over 10 years now, working in adult acute care, and have been in my current role as a Street Triage Clinician for approx. 2 years. Throughout my career and personal life, I have been continuously exposed to people ending their life by suicide and also worked very closely with people who are struggling with bereavement from suicide.
I found the structure of the day very engaging and the resources will certainly be something I will take forward in my role, as signposting to appropriate services is a huge part of what I do now, as effective signposting is crucial.
I found the trainers amazing in their approach from the outset, and they managed to deliver what is a very difficult and emotive subject with passion. They were very open and engaging and supported everyone throughout the day.
I really think this training could make a huge difference in our field and would recommend it to anyone.’
Thank you for putting together such an amazing course with all of those involved
