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.
If you have experienced a suicide death additional healing support is available by contacting your local Crisis Line at 1-888-353-CARE (2273) or by calling 1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433).
You will be provided with a workbook for this session. Please bring a pen for you to take some notes. Please also dress comfortably for the training.
Refreshments and/or snacks will be up to the participant.
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.
To reserve your seat, please make payment to CMHA Kootenays no later than 1 week prior to the workshop. Payment can be dropped off to Silver City Gardens, 1939 Columbia Avenue, Trail, BC V1R 1K5. Office hours are Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm, closed for lunch from 12pm to 1pm.
