Workshop Description

This is a live virtual event using Zoom, an online meeting platform. Please check system requirements prior to registering.

Working with individuals experiencing suicidal thoughts or impulses is challenging, which is why a broad and diverse approach is needed to prevent and respond to the issue. This workshop explores various insights related to suicide intervention, with a key emphasis on life promotion.  Participants will practice the skills needed to identify and assist those at risk of suicide and learn how to support people and communities impacted by suicide. A guide for developing a comprehensive suicide intervention plan will be reviewed, along with direction for incorporating a prevention plan into each participant’s own context.
