Every ninety minutes someone in the UK ends their own life. Many of these people are not known to the health services and have kept their struggles hidden from friends and family.


Employers can play a crucial role when a person reaches a place of personal internal crisis. Join our panel of experts for a ninety-minute Q&A webinar where they will share:

  • How to spot signs that someone is at risk
  • Tips and best practice to prevent situations from escalating
  • An understanding of what safeguarding is and how and when to use it
  • Does UK-GDPR prevent an employer from assisting at a time of crisis
  • The role of wellbeing conversations in the workplace
