About the event
When someone you care about is experiencing a mental health crisis, you may feel helpless and unsure how to respond. Before Jenny lost her Dad to suicide, he turned to his boss for help. Unfortunately, no one knew how to help him - they did not have the understanding or tools to support him in his darkest moment.
Can you confidently respond to someone in crisis? Are you using language that feels unsafe for someone in need?
"Start the Conversation" is an informative workshop that could help you save a life.
- Get comfortable having conversations about mental health
- Understand the three risk factors for suicide
- Learn how to respond to someone in crisis
This event is essential for professionals, teachers, government officials, and community leaders.
