Talking about suicide can be difficult, however, more so if you have recently been impacted by a suicide attempt or death.  We encourage you to take significant time for healing before attending a suicide intervention training.   For some this may be a number of months, and for others this could be a year or more.  Only you know.

You will be provided with a handbook for this session. Please bring a pen for you to take some notes. Please also dress comfortably for the training.

Please refrain from wearing perfume or any other scented products when you come to the training so those who may be sensitive to fragrances can also attend the training. 

Please arrive by 12:15 pm as the training will begin at 12:30 pm on-time.
