Learning days - Mental health, Substance misuse and Suicidality

Start date/time
09:30 19/11/2020
Finish date/time
16:30 19/11/2020

A joint venture between Norfolk and Waveney Mind, Change Grow Live and the NSFT.

Commissioned by Norfolk Public Health and delivered by Norfolk and Waveney Mind, this day is intended for those who work within Norfolk professionally or as volunteers with people who may be at risk of suicide, and whose combination of mental health issues and substance misuse are factors in that risk.

Over half of people in recent contact with mental health services who go on to die by suicide have a history of drug or alcohol misuse. Indeed, the risk of suicide is up to eight times greater if the person is misusing alcohol, and the addition of drugs creates a deadly combination.

Outline of the day

Taking place in a Covid-safe and thoroughly risk-assessed venue, the day offers the chance to rotate around a series of interesting and highly relevant workshops, and offers a rare chance to network with other colleagues and agencies (respecting social distancing, of course).

Topics covered will include:

Suicide first aid – awareness and intervention skills

Trauma informed practice in dual diagnosis

Referrals, pathways, and integrated models of care

Best practice in assessment and helpful tools to use

Learning from lived experience
