See the attached flyer for details. Please share this information with your communities through your leadership messages and other email and social media capacities.  Post copies in common places too. Thank you in advance in sharing this important information as suicide is a leading cause of death and can be prevented.

So why is this important? 

September is Suicide Awareness and Prevention Month

Talk Saves Lives is The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s standardized, 45-60 minute education program that provides participants with a clear understanding of this leading cause of death, including the most up-to-date research on suicide prevention, and what everyone can do in their communities to save lives. 

Participants will learn common risk factors and warning signs associated with suicide, and how to keep themselves and others safe.  

Topics covered include: 

  • Scope of the Problem: The latest data on suicide in the U.S. and worldwide 
  • Research: Information from research on what causes people to consider suicide, as well as health, historical, and environmental factors that put individuals at risk 
  • Prevention: An understanding of the protective factors that lower suicide risk, and strategies for managing mental health and being proactive about self-care 
  • What You Can Do: Guidance on warning signs and behaviors to look for, and how to get help for someone in a suicidal crisis

This is a great opportunity for you to engage your communities by inviting them to attend this program. The program is free, but we are asking for people to register. To register, please follow this link, https://tslbergencounty.attendease.com/, which is also provided on the flyer. There will be an opportunity for Q & A at the end of the presentation.  

This is an opportunity to bring your community together to reduce stigma and raise awareness of the importance of mental health and suicide prevention.
