STORM® is an internationally renowned social business providing skills-based training in Suicide Prevention, Postvention and Self-injury Mitigation. Our evidence-based training is designed for frontline staff across all sectors, including the NHS, police and education.
Training focuses on skills needed to help a person at risk of suicide or self-injury. The postvention training works with the workplace community and a school community to create a responsive strategy to help those affected by a person’s death by suicide.
The training is flexible and adaptable to accommodate a variety of needs, including specialist short courses for psychiatrists and GP’s. The training is highly interactive with methods proven to enhance a greater understanding of the subject and development of skills.
As a social business, we reinvest our surplus into community engagement work, including pro bono and subsidised training, and annual themed seminars. The most recent STORM® seminar focussed on young people and self-harm across the Greater Manchester area attracting professionals from a wide range of disciplines.
