Suicide Awareness and Response Training for GPs

26 September 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Thrive LDN has secured funding from OHID London, as part of their pan-London suicide prevention programme, to pilot free suicide awareness and response training for GPs.
They are inviting GPs, ideally those with an interest in or a ‘champion’ for mental health and suicide prevention, across all London boroughs to register their place in attending this 3.5-hour interactive webinar on either Tuesday 26th September 2023 or
Wednesday 27th September 2023 from 13:00hrs until 16:30hrs.
The training, delivered by 4 Mental Health, offers GPs the opportunity to enhance their response to people in distress or with suicidal thoughts by conferring qualification to use SAFETool which supports clinical suicide risk management. After the course, SAFETool is available to download free on EMIS. For SAFETool to be available to use in practices however, the training is mandatory.Find the link to the short, 3 minute module video here.
To support GPs in London to undertake this training Thrive LDN are offering the training free of charge as well as backfill costs to the practice (via the relevant ICB, unless otherwise indicated).
To secure a place and register their interest, Thrive LDN are asking GPs to email their name, email address, role, GP practice name and manager, London borough and preferred training date torf-tr.thriveldn@nhs.net by Tuesday 19th September.
