ABOUT THIS COURSE
In times of heightened isolation and anxiety, people’s thoughts of suicide can increase. Now, more than ever, it’s essential that we have effective skills to keep each other safe – even if it’s from afar. LivingWorks is a suicide prevention program taught by CMHA-SR’s Suicide Prevention Master Trainer Shannon Hecker and Trainer Denise Butler. While in-person training for this program is not currently available due to the current health crisis, we are pleased to announce an alternative.
LivingWorks Start is a 90-minute online program, which allows trainees to learn suicide prevention skills even while working from home or practicing physical distancing. It works on any computer, smartphone, or tablet, and it includes simulations, practice, and other skill-building activities. There are also ways to apply these skills via phone, text, and other remote methods.
The benefits of LivingWorks Start
LivingWorks Start enables people to recognize when friends, family members, co-workers, and neighbors are struggling and take meaningful actions to keep them safe. Trainees report feeling more confident and prepared to help someone, even during work-from-home and physical distancing. LivingWorks Start will help you build the necessary skills to support someone when they need it most.
