Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council Sessions

Here at PAPYRUS we are pleased to announce that we are working with Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council, to deliver training for those working or volunteering in the Rotherham locality.

The aim of the training offer is to provide suicide prevention knowledge and skills to the workforce to intervene early and equip them with the skills and knowledge to have supportive conversations around Suicide Prevention. It aims to encourage everyone to work together to support the communities of Rotherham and each other, to prevent loss of life to suicide.

We have two types of courses available, below are links to provide an understanding of the course objectives to assist you in identifying the right course for you:
