Welcome to Head First
Head First has been developed to provide information on mental health and suicide prevention training in North Yorkshire. The website is a joint partnership between the North Yorkshire Suicide Prevention Strategic Group and the Stronger Communities project. The site has been funded through North Yorkshire Public Health Team and NHS England; funding aimed at reducing suicides nationally.
We offer a range of services. Whether you are an individual seeking information about courses that will help you manage your own well-being, an organisation seeking ‘train the trainer’ courses for your in-house tutors a voluntary and community sector organisation or charity looking at training for your employees and volunteers or maybe you are already a training provider and would like to promote your services.
We aim to provide a delivery partnership with qualified, experienced trainers in all districts of North Yorkshire. The outcomes will be to:
- Reduce stigma and discrimination
- Develop mentally healthy communities and workplaces
- Reduce suicides
- Increase the wellbeing and emotional resilience of people working and living in North Yorkshire
