Training for School Staff

Training for School Staff

Schools are recommended to access training regularly on self-harm. Staff giving support to pupils who self-harm may experience all sorts of reactions to this behaviour in pupils (e.g. anger, helplessness, rejection); it is helpful for staff to have an opportunity to talk this through with work colleagues or senior management. Staff taking this role should take the opportunity to attend training days on self-harm or obtain relevant literature.

Compass BUZZ

Compass BUZZ – The aim of the project is to develop a ‘whole school approach’ with the priority placed on improving the resilience and emotional wellbeing of children and young people. As a result of the project’s wraparound support, school staff will feel empowered to tackle stigma and effectively respond to children and young people’s emotional and mental health needs. Highly skilled and committed Wellbeing Workers deliver a free rolling programme of tiered training to North Yorkshire schools and other key professionals, promoting a range of early help and prevention strategies as part of a wider integrated multi-agency approach.

Papyrus

Papyrus works around three key principles; Support Equip and Influence.

Support: We provide confidential support and advice to young people struggling with thoughts of suicide, and anyone worried about a young person through our helpline, HOPELINEUK.

Equip: We engage communities and volunteers in suicide prevention projects and deliver training programmes to individuals and groups. This includes equipping local councils, healthcare professionals and school staff with suicide prevention skills.

Influence: We aim to shape national social policy and make a significant contribution to the local and regional implementation of national suicide prevention strategies wherever we can. Our campaigning comes from our passion as individuals, parents, families and communities who have been touched personally by young suicide. We press for change in many places using hard-hitting and dynamic campaigns as well as presenting evidence to those in power so that lessons can be learned and learning implemented to help save young lives.
