Mental Health Matters

On Friday 10th May, ahead of the start of Mental Health Awareness Week, Rhys Harrison, Director of Akemi Associates, supported Andy Chapman (York City Council’s Suicide Prevention Lead Officer), in the delivery of SafeTALK, a Living Works’ Suicide Alertness training course.

Says Rhys, “The participants came from across the city of York and beyond, and represented different public sector organisations, private companies, charities, and private individuals. All were there to learn how to help people with thoughts of suicide to keep safe. Most people with thoughts of suicide give invitations, even very subtle invitations, to invite help to stay safe”.

SafeTALK trains participants to recognise these invitations and to connect a person with thoughts of suicide to intervention resources.

Be aware and help to keep your family, friends and employees safe.
