Suicide Awareness and Prevention for the Workplace

If you hire veteran’s you need this workshop. Twenty-two veterans die by suicide every day — that’s nearly one each hour. The suicide of a coworker will negatively impact your entire organization and increase risk for the ones left behind. Give your  employees the power of knowing the warning signs of suicide and the skills they need to act when they see them. This workshop also provides resources for local and national suicide prevention support as well as resources designed specifically for veterans.

Each participant receives a Suicide Intervention Handbook CD.
