Al Forthan Memorial Scholarship Training
With Monica Parmley, LCSW
suicideTALK is a 3-hour workshop that invites interested community members to become more aware of suicide prevention opportunities in their community. Dealing openly with the stigma around suicide, this exploration focuses upon the question, “Should we talk about suicide?” As a suicideTALK-informed session member, you will be better able to:
• understand how personal and community beliefs about suicide affect suicide stigma and safety;
• appreciate how the steps taught in suicideTALK can be used to help prevent suicide;
• choose among ways to help protect, preserve and promote life in a suicide-safer community.
• identify additional resources and training opportunities to foster more in-depth knowledge of suicide prevention and intervention
