“All our clients are autistic, and a significant minority have struggled with either suicidal thoughts or suicidal behaviour. We therefore arranged a day’s training for our team with National Centre for Suicide Prevention training UK, which Fiona delivered because in addition to her deep knowledge and experience of suicide prevention work, she also has a strong background in supporting autistic people.
The event turned out to be that rarest of occasions: a training day which gave us exactly what we needed, including the confidence to take the theory and put it into practice. It was hugely affirmative. Many of my colleagues who attended opted to do the follow-up National Accredited Unit of Learning, and this has been very positive in terms of our own practice.
I’m more than happy to recommend this training to others who are supporting autistic people – in fact I genuinely can’t recommend it too highly.
