Customer Feedback:

“While the emergency services arrive very quickly, it usually takes a few minutes. Those few minutes might make all the difference. I wanted to ensure that I knew what to do and what to say. The STORM® training has helped to give me that confidence”

Starting the Conversation Workshop

By ‘starting the conversation’ around suicide and self-harm with consideration to emotional health – our emotional health, bringing the outside focus inward – we begin a conversation that is easier to engage with because we ‘all’ understand suicide and self-harm from a personal perspective. 

A deeper understanding can also translate into a sense of empathy thus creating the potential for a more compassionate approach with others.

Through self-reflection, discussion and group work in a safe learning environment, Participants will:

Through self-refection, discussion and group work, participants will understand Suicide and Self-harm in relation to their professional experiences, develop a coherent understanding of what is necessary to help those at risk and identify strategies, practices and challenges to suicide prevention within their work.

#HeyAreYouOK? Workshops for Workplaces

Our #HeyAreYouOK workshops for the workplace will equip your workforce with the relevant skills to help look after their own mental wellbeing, and to reach out to someone in (di)stress, but also the opportunity to develop a culture that more effectively manages and responds to (di)stress.

#HeyAreYouOK? Workshop for Workplaces

The aim of the #HeyAreYouOK? Campaign is to:

Promote a culture that teaches us to recognise (di)stress and to talk about it openly and honestly; a culture that teaches us to ask for help without fear of being stigmatised; and a culture that teaches us that sometimes we need to reach out to those we think may be finding life difficult to cope with.

STORM® believes that the responsibility for mental health and wellbeing needs to be mutually inclusive between the workplace and the workforce. 

Through the #HeyAreYouOK Workshops for Workplaces, staff members explore the 3-steps of the #HeyAreYouOK? campaign in detail in order to:

Through Self-reflection, Discussion, and group work in a safe learning environment, staff will learn how the #HeyAreYouOK 3-step approach can help in their professional and personal lives.

Through Self-reflection, Discussion, Role-rehearsal and Group Work in a safe learning environment, staff will learn how to embed the #HeyAreYouOK 3-steps into workplace culture.

What our customers say:

Striving towards a more collaborative and inclusive approach to suicide prevention.
