- Suicide Prevention and Facing Grief
Please join us for a free 1.5 hour educational program designed to teach lay and professional gatekeepers the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to respond. Gatekeepers can include anyone who is positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide (including parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, doctors, clergy, etc.). This training is referred to as “Question, Persuade, Refer”. You will also learn about the Survivor Outreach Program and what you can do as a volunteer and how you can obtain training. There will also be a segment addressing tips for coping with grief during the holiday season – you’ll receive 30 tips that can help you get through grief in those days. Our presenters are Sarah Derwin, Health Educator at the Marquette County Health Department and Co-Chair of the Marquette County Suicide Prevention Alliance, and Tonya Allen, local speaker on the experience of losing a loved one to suicide who is a trained volunteer for the American Foundation of Suicide prevention Survivor Outreach Program. Anyone 12 years old and up can participate. Those under 18 yrs should have a signed permission slip from a parent/guardian.
