Nearly 30 Deliveroo SG riders given responder training for suicide prevention
It was due to a partnership with non-profit Samaritans of Singapore.
Close to 30 Deliveroo riders will be given a first-responder training workshop to learn vital skills and information for suicide prevention to mark World Suicide Prevention Day on 10 September.
Deliveroo Singapore announced this as it is working with Samaritans of Singapore (SOS) for the workshop.
The Be a Samaritan (BAS) programme, opened by Ms Tan Li San, Chief Executive Officer of the National Council of Social Service, will cover “important aspects of identifying suicide warning signs, ways to support at-risk individuals and available help resources to encourage early help seeking.”
Aside from this, about 200 Deliveroo riders will support SOS’ World Suicide Prevention Month efforts by putting a campaign sticker on their delivery bags during September.
The sticker contains information about suicide prevention, including the SOS 24/7 helpline, and will raise awareness about suicide prevention.
