We are the first suicide prevention skills training package for the frontline – supported by over 20 years of peer-reviewed academic research.
Our courses increase confidence and competence by enhancing the communication skills needed to: engage someone in distress, to work collaboratively, assess vulnerability, plan for safety and prevent suicide.
We are a Community Interest Company that reinvests surplus income into the community. Some of our work includes: offering free and subsidised training, free conferences and seminars and small grants to support grass roots suicide prevention related work.
Doing ‘something’ to help someone in distress is valuable and important, but doing something with a sound evidence base can have greater benefit.
With an academic and clinical background with over 20 years’ experience, we know what works well in training and to help those in distress.
Why choose us?
We are from academic, clinical and lived experience backgrounds. We translate the evidence into practice with a focus on ‘real life’ experiences and what works for those in distress.
Evidence underpins the content and methodology of our training packages. Our unique formula is supported by academic research to improve confidence, knowledge and skills of frontline staff.
At STORM®, we believe that no one should profit from another person’s distress. We are a not-for-profit Community Interest Company that reinvests our surplus income into expanding our social impact. We do this through our Community Engagement Programme.
Investing in STORM® is investing in social impact and value for you, your staff, your service users and the wider community.
When tackling one of life’s most challenging and sensitive topics, you want to make sure that training is delivered in the right way.
Our STORM® Consultants are skilled facilitators with a wide range of experiences and professional backgrounds. They are also passionate about suicide prevention and self-harm mitigation.
Our training model uses small group sizes to maximise facilitation of learning and skill development. This means that the Consultant can maintain a safe learning environment whilst attending to each individuals’ level of knowledge and experience.
The training is relevant and in context. Our training model can be applied to any context. Participants draw upon their own experiences to translate the skills they have learnt into practice.
