Funded by Devon Partnership Trust, Stronger Together workshops aimed at reducing incidents of suicide and increase safety. These workshops were co-produced by a team of carers, service user experts by experience and practitioners, and co-delivered by a carer expert by experience and a DPT practitioner.
We conducted a comprehensive evaluation to understand the impact of the Stronger Together training on carers’ and staff’s confidence and competence supporting someone suicidal. Using a mixed-method approach, this evaluation investigated changes in carers and staff’s knowledge of legislation when navigating consent, confidentiality, and information sharing, and understanding of importance of collaborative working following the workshops.
A detailed report was produced by Dr Melika Janbakhsh, Nick Smith and Professor Jonathan Parker to present and discuss the results of this evaluation. You can read the report here.
