Suicide Prevention – Foundations for Awareness and Prevention

FREE  In Person Training with Dr. Naomi Paget

Why don’t we learn more about suicide – because the thought that we might have to intervene scares us to death! What we know about suicide is, it’s overwhelmingly sad and painful for the surviving friends and families.

Everyone should have a foundational awareness of the risks and warning signs of suicide. We want to effectively intervene with suicidal individuals long before they attempt the act of suicide.

This course is recommended for those without formal mental health training. The course is designed to increase awareness of suicide and equip participants with information and basic skills to support persons who have high risk for suicide and to immediately recognize the warning signs that a person is considering suicide.  Discussions, demonstrations, and scenarios will be used to facilitate learning. This is a foundational level course.

Program Highlights:

Recognizing the warning signs of suicide
