Kristina Newson, Crisis Team, Young Minds Matter, Yorkshire
I attended the Suicide bereavement training in Manchester on 5th February 2019. I found this training to be very informative, helpful and insightful. It was delivered in a sensitive and considerate manner. Suicide is a very emotive subject and the training has help me in various ways. I work in crisis team, which is directly dealing with young people who are having suicidal thoughts and some attempt suicide. The aim of my role is to prevent young people taking their own lives. Therefore the training has been helpful to me in many ways, for example it covered how important the use of language can be to those who have been affected by someone who is contemplating suicide or the families who have experienced loosing a loved one to suicide.
