|Join us at our 90-minute suicideTALK on August 13th from 3:00-4:30PM
Hosted by: Alicia’s Salon & Day Spa
Our primary focus is to improve knowledge surrounding depression and mental illness in the hopes of positive intervention with persons at risk of suicide.
suicideTALK invites all participants—regardless of prior training or experience—to become more aware of suicide prevention opportunities in their community. Dealing openly with the stigma around suicide, this exploration focuses upon the question “Should we talk about suicide?” By looking at this question in a number of different ways, session members can discover some of the beliefs and ideas about suicide in their communities—and in themselves.
suicideTALK participants will learn…
- How suicide is a serious community health problem that is often misunderstood.
- How personal and community beliefs about suicide affect the stigma and public safety.
- How the steps taught in LivingWorks’ safeTALK program can be used to help prevent suicide.
- How to get involved in life protection, preservation, and promotion activities in the community.
Imagine… a suicide-safer community
