Burnt Chef Project starts accredited suicide prevention training programme

Written by: Edward Waddell
Not-for-profit organisation The Burnt Chef Project has announced the launch of two accredited suicide prevention training programmes in association with Suicide First Aid and MHFA England.

These two new programmes can be delivered both virtually and in person. The launch of the training programmes was announced on World Suicide Prevention Day, which occurs every year on 10th September.

World Suicide Prevention Day aims to focus attention on how we can create a world where fewer people die by suicide, reduce stigma, raise awareness and reinforce the message that suicides are preventable.

Kris Hall, founder of the Burnt Chef Project, said: “This SFA Lite course is for employees at all levels to build the foundation of suicide awareness, tackle stigma and build confidence to intervene with people at risk of suicide. Ideal for those who want to help colleagues who may be in distress but also for those who work in hospitality venues and may be needing to intervene with guests.”
