Level 2 award in suicide awareness

This qualification is aimed at individuals who want to gain an understanding of suicide risk and how people might react when faced with a difficult situation or circumstance.


This short 5-week online course is aimed at:

  • providing learners with knowledge of the scale and context of suicide in the United Kingdom
  • the associated stigma of suicide
  • the main risk factors
  • helping learners recognise that suicide is preventable

Learners will consider the impact of challenging situations on mood and behaviour and how this can lead to negative thoughts and feelings. This will provide an awareness of how suicidal thoughts can arise and identify those at potential risk of suicide.

We have courses starting in 2022. For more information email glossop.ace@derbyshire.gov.uk
