Suicide Prevention

Stat tuned as we are planning a course this week in the Nashua/Derry area.

DESCRIPTION

Developed by NAMI New Hampshire, Connect Suicide Prevention/Intervention provides training in suicide prevention across the lifespan for professionals and laypersons. Using a unique socio-ecological model, Connect examines suicide prevention in the context of the individual, family, tribe, community and society.
Participants learn to recognize early warning signs of suicide and how to connect with individuals at risk and get them help. Additionally, Connect training addresses “systems” issues including the need for community-wide collaboration, safe messaging, restricting access to lethal means, and the impact of social media.
Learning Objectives:  
1. Gain an awareness of the impact of suicide locally and nationally and recognize warning signs in individuals who may be at risk.
2. Recognize and identify the risk and protective factors that underlie suicide risk, and foster safe messaging in talking about suicide risk.
3. Understand best practice protocols for communication and access to resources in response to suicide attempts and threats in individuals
This course satisfies the suicide prevention (6 hrs) requirement for Certified Recovery Support Worker (CRSW) certification in the state of New Hampshire, per the NH LADC Board. 6 CEUs awarded upon completion of the entire course.
