Join us as we work toward a suicide safer community.  We can all learn the skills to assist someone in a crisis.

 

In this brief class, (less than 90 minutes), you will learn the basics of how to assist someone who is talking about taking their own life.

 

Saturday, May 7, 2016 from 10:30 AM to 11:45 AM, at Lebanon Lutheran Church, 1101 S Mears Ave., Whitehall, MI 49461. 

 

Please register for this class at https://whitehallqpr.eventbrite.com

 

1 in 5 people will struggle with a mental illness in their life.  Sometimes those struggles can become life threatening.  Still, the overwhelming majority of people who express suicidal ideas do not actually want to die.

 

When confronted by a suicidal person we can get confused, upset, and concerned about what to do.  The steps are fairly simple and this class will give you those steps.  Most people who die by suicide have discussed their desire to die before taking their life.  And most of us do not know what to say or do in those times.

 

The cost of this training is underwritten by a grant provided by The Greater Muskegon Service League.
