Event description

Description

The Safe Space training has been designed by Grassroots as a suicide prevention and intervention model that focuses on the LGBTQ+ population and their increased risk for suicide. CEUs are available.

Through a dynamic combination of teaching, multimedia, activities, and open discussion, the training delves into the following topics:

-Challenges specific to LGBTQ+ people based on stigma, life experiences, and societal pressures

-Suicide risk in the LBGTQ+ population

-Talking to a person-at-risk about suicide

-Support these individuals and their loved ones in accessing care and treatment

-Differences in acceptance and tolerance

-History and evolution of language in the LGBTQ+ community

-Sexuality and gender specific issues, and their impacts on mental health

-Resources for those seeking to provide support to LBGTQ+ people

-How to create Safe Space within organizations and communities

The training program combines cultural competence with prevention and intervention strategies to reduce stigma, reduce suicidality, and ultimately save lives.
