Learning from the Good Samaritans

Dedicated to ensuring our teams have the capability and aptitude to recognise and deal with all situations on the railway, we are pleased to welcome the RISSG Samaritans to our National Training Academy today to deliver the ‘Managing Suicidal Contacts training’. Providing ‘emotional health first aid skills’, the course focuses on the benefits of a short conversation with someone who may be experiencing suicidal feelings and the techniques required to minimise not only the immediate risk, but also reduce the risk of the person returning at a later point.
