    I would recommend this training (ASIST) if anyone can persuade an employer, raise sponsorship or can fund it themselves. Two day course is 215- 239:

    http://www.prevent-suicide.org.uk/as...ng_course.html

    I've done it and would recommend it, having lost a close friend to paracetamol overdose, and working in adult social care.

    The course should be thought as emergency mental health first aid in the same way that we acknowledge St Johns' emergency physical first aid.

    It is important to recognise someone who is contemplating suicide may offer verbal "invitations". These are the opportunities for you to talk about it with them, often something off-key that your gut feeling will notice. Sadly, we are all "busy" and dismissive or not actively listening all the time (we're all human) but if you feel what they say seems off, it probably is. The hardest thing is to ask them the S word. But you'll probably find it'll be a relief for them - then to talk about it can hugely helpful.

      I don't mind, and maffew wasn't to know. Most people presume that all posters are male on a football forum, unless you have feminine username.

      @spence and @maffew stop it. You are both making me feel bad now. It's not worth arguing about.

      NSC at its very best ~ a post based on assumption on a matter the poster hasn't got a clue about!!
