South East and Central Essex Mind are starting a conversation on self-harm and suicide in South East Essex by offering free training for up to 200 delegates over 12 months.

The charity has been awarded funding by Awards for All to run a 12 month programme of free training on self-harm and suicide to authorities, schools and businesses in South East Essex. There are 200 places available and the programme will launch on World Suicide Prevention Day on the 10th September.

Kristina Stazaker, Development Manager, says “this funding has given people a wonderful opportunity to access free training in order to save lives and prevent harm. We would like to thank Awards for All for supporting our services.”

Due to the popularity of this, SECE Mind are taking early-bird interest via their website:

South East and Central Essex Mind deliver essential mental health services to people with mental health issues and their families. Based on Southchurch Road at the Jubilee Centre in Southend, they provide a mental health advice, information and guidance service, counselling and peer support provision and supported housing. Although South East and Central Essex Mind is affiliated to national Mind, a leading mental health charity in England and Wales, they are responsible for funding their own services.
