CentraCare Offering S.A.V.E. Suicide Prevention Training During Suicide Prevention Awareness Month

Published in Media Releases Author: CentraCare

Suicidal thoughts can affect anyone regardless of their age, background or gender. These thoughts may occur due to untreated mental health conditions or challenging circumstances.

Join CentraCare’s Suicide Prevention Program Manager Lisa Bershok to learn more about S.A.V.E., a suicide prevention training that teaches people how to recognize the warnings signs of suicide, ask more questions and connect someone at risk to care.

Just like CPR taught community members to keep people alive until they could connect them with a health care professional, S.A.V.E Suicide Prevention training does the same for those at risk of suicide.

There will be two virtual trainings:

  • Noon to 1 p.m. Monday, Sept. 12
  • Noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29

These virtual trainings are free. Registration is required and space is limited. Please register at:

If you or someone you know needs support now, call or text 988 or chat 988 connects you with a trained crisis counselor who can help.
