Schema – an approach to suicide prevention

Who SCHEMA is designed for

Forward For Life and Common Unity believe that suicide prevention requires a range of approaches to be effective. One of the key approaches is through the delivery of training that looks to strengthen the knowledge base, the skill base and the resilience levels within and across our communities for all community members both in a professional context and general population context.

SCHEMA, as a one day training programme, has been developed and designed to enable people from all walks of life, through adopting a six stage approach, to reduce the likelihood of potential suicide behaviour and therefore reduce suicide.

SCHEMA – How it will help you:

• Spot the signals of possible suicide ideation

• Ask the right questions

• Explore with empathy

• Assess risk and forward plan

• Enable short-term support and appropriate signposting

• Learn the skills that can save lives
