January 16, 2019   //   No Comments

Suicide Bereavement UK have developed PABBS evidence-based suicide bereavement training. This was informed by a three year study, conducted at the University of Manchester. PABBS stands for Postvention: Assisting those bereaved by suicide. Learn about the training here.

The organisation recognises that there will be a huge need for trained people to meet the NHS’s long term plan for mental health, which included a commitment to providing 24/7 mental health crisis phone line and support for families and staff affected by suicide.¬†
