Workshop on youth suicide prevention, Thursday, Feb 17

Sunday, January 16, 2011

 On Thursday February 17, Richmond Beach Congregational Church will sponsor a free, half-day safeTalk workshop on suicide prevention led by the Youth Suicide Prevention Program (YSPP).  The workshop hours are 10 am to 1 pm. 

safeTALK is for anyone who wants to help prevent suicide - clergy, volunteers, parents, law enforcement, teachers, sexual assault advocates, and senior center staff. 

safeTALK teaches members of the community to recognize people with thoughts of suicide and to connect them to suicide first aid resources. 

This one-half day workshop, developed by Living Works Education,a Canadian public service company dedicated to the prevention of suicide, offers a carefully crafted set of steps that makes it possible for attendees to leave the training willing and able to be suicide alert helpers.

Register online or call YSPP at 206-297-5922. 

Richmond Beach Congregation Church is located at 1512 NW 195th Street, Shoreline WA 98177.
