For those of us that work in the mental health field, September to December are often high suicide risk months and we are entering that time of the year where more and more of our clients are feeling despondent, overwhelmed and hopeless.
The recent series “13 Reasons Why” has elicited a lot of conversation about suicide and even though this controversial show has been highly criticised; it has definitely opened our eyes to real issues and real struggles. “13 Reasons Why” honours the pain young people go through and encourages that young people reach out and talk about their feelings.

As therapists at the other end of the reaching out we need to know how to have conversations of hope and help. Suicidal thoughts are absolutely treatable and Solution Focused questions and techniques empower the therapist with hope catching language. Come join John Henden, renowned UK author of "Suicide Prevention" on the 26th and 27th of September for a 2 day 16 CPD workshop on Solution Focused Suicide Prevention to equip yourself with strategies and questions to treat clients that are struggling.
