In order to maximise the impact of community suicide prevention and mental health training programs, we need to work together to coordinate its delivery.
Local training evaluation
The Collaborative has set up a short evaluation survey that can be used across all community training programs. The benefits of all trainers using the same evaluation are:
1) For the first time, we’ll be able to give trainers a clear indication of where training is needed and which groups of people need training.
2) And we’ll be able to provide each trainer with feedback on the impact of their training, even when they deliver a range of different programs.
These benefits should make it a lot easier for trainers and training organisations to promote future training and reach community members who are in real need.
