NAMI High Country Colorado to host suicide prevention training
February 3, 2017
The National Alliance on Mental Illness will host the first event of its education nights series on Monday, Feb. 6, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the St. Anthony Summit Medical Center classroom, located between the front lobby and cafeteria.
Susan Preaus, a counselor for the county's school-based health clinics, will teach a suicide prevention training course titled "Question, Persuade and Refer: Three steps anyone can learn to prevent suicide."
The training will help attendees become confident in recognizing the warning signs of suicide in a person, starting a conversation with them and knowing where to turn for help. NAMI also invites attendees to share their ideas, questions and feedback during the training.
A light dinner will be served, and there is no cost or need to register. The event is also sponsored by Building Hope Summit County, St. Anthony Summit Medical Center and the Summit County Care Clinic. For more information, contact Betty Sarber at (970) 389-0808 or email@example.com.
The goal of education nights is to provide local residents with information about mental health and substance abuse while also teaching skills for the pursuit of a better life.
