Sustainable Income Generation for Schools Masterclass
The Suicide First Aid Lite programme is delivered over 3 hours as a suicide prevention awareness session. The course gives learners the knowledge and tools to understand that suicide is one of the most preventable deaths and some basic skills can help someone with thoughts of suicide stay safe from their thoughts and stay alive. The programme teaches the skills needed to identify someone who may be thinking about suicide and to pass the person onto a suicide first aider.
First Aid Lite live online training offers learning outcomes that are knowledge based and factual. This training can be used as a stand-alone programme or as the first part of a journey to learn suicide prevention skills.

Steve is an award-winning mental health, workplace well-being and suicide first aid trainer. In 2022 he was awarded the pride of Swindon and recognised as a mental health training service... provider of the year for his continual work around mental health and suicide prevention. In April of 2016 he completed a challenge to walk one end of Britain to the other, this was after experiencing a mental health breakdown in the workplace. The challenge was an attempt to raise awareness for mental health and homelessness whilst also being in recovery and homeless himself. He did this in the hope it would help reduce the stigma surrounding poor mental health and mental illness, and to demonstrate just how easy it was to lose everything and become homeless when we don’t ask for help.
