Suicide Prevention Week Learning Opportunities

22nd July 2022

This year’s suicide prevention campaign will focus on the emotional impact related to the cost-of-living crisis

The cost-of-living crisis is impacting on everyone regardless of job or income. We are all examining outgoings and thinking about where to make savings. This year’s campaign aims to highlight the emotional impact of the decisions which individuals and families are facing.

To support Fife’s workforce, Fife’s Health Promotion Service is working in collaboration with partners to provide a range of learning opportunities during the campaign week: from one-hour bitesize introduction workshops to two-day courses.
