Building suicide-safer schools - RESCHEDULED DUE TO BAD WEATHER
Due to bad weather conditions this event has had to be rescheduled, and will no longer be taking place today (1 March).
It will now take place on:
Thursday 22 March
St Catherine’s Catholic School
Watling Street, Bexleyheath, DA6 7QJ
4pm to 6pm
The national charity for the prevention of young suicide will be coming to Bexleyheath in March to deliver a free workshop for school professionals.
PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide will be presenting its ‘Save The #ClassOf2018’ campaign, which launched at the end of last year to mark World Suicide Prevention Day. The charity helps to provide schools and colleges across the UK with the resources to develop a suicide prevention policy to help prevent more young deaths.
Suicide remains the biggest killer of under 35’s in the UK, and over 200 school aged children are lost to suicide every year. In Bexley, four young people had taken their life in 2015.
Any young death is heart-breaking, but a death by suicide can have a devastating impact on so many people, including those within the school community.
The workshop aims to give schools the information they need to support students who might be at risk of suicide. Attendees will learn about:
The role that those in contact with children can play in preventing young suicide
How you can equip your school to become suicide safer including creating a suicide-safer policy, training and awareness
A policy template and the skills to customise it for your school
How to raise awareness, with support from PAPYRUS’ helpline, HOPELineUK
If you feel that you or a colleague would benefit from this workshop, please contact Bexley’s Public Health Advisor for Children & Young People Pascale Berthellet on 0203 045 3831 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

YADT Anger Management Support Service
Feeling angry is part of being human. It is a natural response to being attacked, insulted, deceived, disappointed or frustrated.
It’s ok to feel angry (everyone does at times) and anger can be useful when we know how to manage it well. But it can also be frightening. Anger becomes a problem when it harms you or the people around you and can cause depression, anxiety, sleeping problems and eating disorders.
If you need help to understand and manage your anger, contact us today!
