Taking steps; reducing suicide

The number of suicides continues to rise, with 1 in 5 of us suffering from suicidal thoughts. To make a difference, we’ve collaborated with experts to bring you a package which will help prevent suicides.

We’ve launched the first regulated awards in the UK to raise awareness and reduce suicide.

Improve outcomes and help save lives  

  • These qualifications are designed to destigmatise suicide, and provide learners with the skills to face conversations around mental health and suicide with confidence.
  • With short GLH, the qualifications fit seamlessly into enrichment activity, pastoral support, or other work commitments.
  • Both qualifications are eligible for funding by the ESFA, making them even more accessible.
  • High quality, online learning resources are available from LearnBox to support delivery of the Level 2 Award.
  • The qualifications are suitable for a wide range of learners aged 16+, including adult learners in any sector.
  • Should you need further training and support to deliver these qualifications, there’s an accredited ‘train the trainer’ course available from BDLD.

Please note that CACHE is not a suicide helpline. To access help for suicidal thoughts, please visit the NHS website.
