Suicide Awareness

Every year more attention is being brought to subjects of mental health and suicide awareness.  While there is still a great amount of stigma towards these topics, education and understanding have helped create environments for those who suffer.  There are places where they can feel comfortable speaking out, and those they reach out to can offer assistance.  Suicide doesn’t discriminate.  It knows all facets of life and every industry.  Suicide is a serious public health problem that causes immeasurable pain, suffering, and loss to individuals, families, and communities nationwide. The causes of suicide are complex and determined by multiple combinations of factors, such as mental illness, alcohol and substance abuse, painful losses, exposure to violence, and social isolation.  The purpose of this training is to raise awareness of suicide, other serious emotional health concerns, and provide important information about getting help for someone who may be thinking about suicide.
