Free Suicide Prevention & Support Workshop throughout Vancouver Island

Innovative New Approaches to Suicide Prevention
In recognition of World Suicide Prevention Week 2013, we are offering a FREE Suicide Prevention & Support workshop, highlighting innovative new approaches to suicide prevention strategies for youth, adults, and those bereaved by suicide.

The workshop is for anyone interested in learning current research-based information about suicide prevention.

Innovative New Approaches to Suicide Prevention is an interactive presentation featuring the latest research coming from the American Association of Suicidology. During the workshop participants will learn new approaches to working with male clients, question accepted practice standards regarding suicide such as impulsivity and the connections between substance abuse and suicide. Participants will learn research based tools for strengthening protective factors in community and the power of relational engagement.

Workshops are taking place in Tofino, Campbell River, Courtenay, Victoria, Port McNeill, Port Alberni, Parksville, Duncan, and Ladysmith. Seats are limited to 30 per workshop.
