Quick thinking staff member puts mental health awareness and suicide prevention training into action
Earlier this year, staff at Nottingham Forest Community Trust took part in mental health awareness and suicide prevention training as part of our ongoing commitment to raise awareness and reduce stigma around mental health.
This training was delivered as part of our mental health and wellbeing programme ‘Tricky to Talk’ and equips our staff with the skills to identify signs that someone may be experiencing mental ill health and suicidal thoughts.
Following on from receiving this training, one of our delegates and Trust staff, Arron Cuttriss, was able to assist and help in a suicide intervention recently using the skills he learnt.
Nottingham Forest Community Trust CEO, Graham Moran said, ‘I am delighted that one of our team members could call upon his training and act quickly to help prevent someone from dying by suicide.’.
Graham continues, “We take pride in providing our staff with as much training as possible and I am pleased on this occasion, Arron was in the right place at the right time to intervene and put his training into action.
