Free Suicide Prevention Workshop for Service Providers in Rural Communities
Between 2000 and 2020, suicide rates rose 46% in non-metro areas compared to 27.3% in metro areas. Now more than ever, learning actionable skills to help individuals at risk can make a critical difference. SafeSide Prevention and UR Medicine Recovery Center of Excellence together are offering a free, half-day workshop that provides participants with a systematic framework for suicide prevention. This comprehensive training for service providers in rural communities includes special focus on youth, substance use, and Indigenous communities. The interactive workshop features video demonstrations, active discussion groups, and access to the latest research on best practices. For a year after the workshop—also at no cost—you can take advantage of ongoing support, including monthly Q&A video calls and online discussion forums.
