    This training session is now fully booked and we will not be able to confirm any further bookings for the event.

    If you would like to book at a place at a future iteration of "Suicide Awareness - Ask...Tell for Young People" please e-mail [email protected] to ask to placed on the waiting list.



    FVA lunchtime learning sessions are aimed at raising the skills and capacities of local service providers interested in improving or enhancing their provision in Fife.


    This is a very popular workshop that is being delivered and is always oversubscribed. We still have a waiting list for this workshop, so if you have booked but subsequently cannot attend, could you please e-mail the course deliverer Eddie Martin at [email protected] or the FVA Employability Development Officer Sandy Mackenzie at [email protected] as we will then be able to offer the space to another candidate.  


    **Please note that this session is 1.5hrs long and will run from 12:00 to 1:30pm.**

    **This session has limited places, so book early to avoid disappointment**

    This session will raise awareness and have facilitated discussions around the three “Ask, Tell...” educational animations designed to support learning about mental health, self-harm and suicide prevention specifically for the wider Children and Young People’s workforce.

    The animations are designed to help workers to understand the factors that influence mental health and resilience in children and young people, engage proactively with children and young people about mental health, self-harm and suicide and recognise when to seek help.
