For Suicide Prevention Month - Suicide Prevention Trainings

The National Institute of Health estimates that 10 million adults a year have thoughts of suicide. Join CentraCare's Suicide Prevention Program Manager for a suicide prevention gatekeeper training. S.A.V.E. suicide prevention training teaches you how to recognize the warning signs of suicide, how to respond, and connect someone to help. The more trained responders we have in our communities, the healthier and safer we will all be.

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. Join us from noon to 1 p.m. Sept. 22. Register today!
