Take Suicide Prevention Training
Suicidal thoughts can affect anyone regardless of their age, background or gender. These thoughts may occur due to untreated mental health conditions or challenging circumstances. Join CentraCare’s Suicide Prevention Program Manager to learn more about S.A.V.E., a suicide prevention training that teaches people how to recognize the warnings signs of suicide and how to respond to a person who is at risk of suicide. Just like CPR taught community members to keep people alive until they could connect them with a health care professional, S.A.V.E suicide prevention training does the same for those at risk of suicide. Register for a free upcoming seminar at noon June 3, July 8 or Aug. 5.
