Free online suicide prevention training
Just to remind you that we're promoting the free online suicide prevention training, put together by the Zero Suicide Alliance. The training, which is accessible to all, takes about 20 minutes to complete and shows you the signs to lookout for if someone is struggling, how to talk to them about this, and how to keep them safe.
You can access the training here - www.bit.ly/zsa-training.
For a limited time, as a way to encourage as many people as possible to do the training, we're offering a free drink and snack from participating community cafes in the county, upon presentation of either a photo or print off of the completion page. For more information, including the list of all cafes participating in this promotion, please visit here - http://bit.ly/zsa-ts-and-cs.
Just About Coping
We are excited to bring you the brand new MHFA England podcast, Just About Coping!
What is it about?
Just About Coping is an exploratory podcast looking at the future of mental health and wellbeing. I've been lucky enough to be joined by a fantastic range of guests to discuss their lived experiences, passions, latest projects, and to try and answer the question: how can we create a world where everyone is coping? I hope the podcast will explore what we can do both as individuals and as a community to build a positive culture around mental health, spread awareness, tackle stigma, and make mental health a normal part of everyday conversation. You can listen to the trailer for an introduction to the podcast and our first episode featuring the fascinating and utterly unique Ruby Wax; mental health campaigner, performer, comedian, and author.
Where can I listen?
- On Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Sticher, and many other podcast apps
- On the Just About Coping website
- On the MHFA England website
- On YouTube
How can I get involved?
We'd love for you to share your support and let us know you'll be listening with the hashtag #JACPodcast. Over the coming weeks we’ll hear from activist Alexander Leon, TV medic Dr Ranj, stress and burnout expert Tony Piper, campaigner and writer Jonny Benjamin, and Lady Phyll, Co-Founder of UK Black Pride. You can subscribe wherever you get your podcasts to ensure you don’t miss out. Over the course of the series, we hope you'll join us on our journey and imagine together what a mentally healthy world might look like. Happy listening!
