About this course
The Bridge First Aid is proud to be a Zero Suicide Alliance (ZSA) member organisation. To learn more please visit the ZSA website.
The ZSA provide a range of awareness training resources for a better understanding of the signs to look out for and skills required to approach someone who is struggling, whether that be through social isolation or suicidal thoughts.
There are 3 training modules. The ZSA recommend you start at Step 1 – the ‘Step Up’ Social Isolation Module and work your way up to the Gateway Module and on to the ZSA Suicide Awareness Training
The ZSA is ultimately concerned with improving support for people contemplating suicide by raising awareness of, and promoting, FREE suicide prevention training which is accessible to all.
Step 2 – Gateway Training that gives those who are interested a taster of how to approach someone who is struggling and takes about 10 minutes.
Step 3 – Advanced training that takes around 25 minutes to complete and gives you the skills and awareness to recognise when someone may be contemplating taking their own life.
