About this event

When a neighbor’s tractor gets stuck, you don’t hesitate to help. But when you see a family member, friend, or client stuck in a rut—and possibly suicidal—it can be daunting to try and help and can leave you feeling powerless. Suicide is a significant public health issue in Montana. It involves the tragic loss of human life and causes agonizing grief, fear, and confusion in families and communities. The impact can even extend across generations. This training focuses teaches in-depth skills you can learn in half a day. You’ll learn how to recognize someone having thoughts of suicide, how to engage them, and how to make sure they get help. This evidence-based training is effective for people as young as 15 years old. The session will include a unit specially designed to address the stigma associated with suicide and mental illness among farmers and farm workers.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND? Farmers, lenders, mediators, agency staff, clergy, educators, veterinarians, health care and social service providers, agricultural advisors, business people, and anyone else who interacts with people who farm or ranch.

Only 30 spots are available for this training. Once those spots are filled, you will be placed on the waiting list. If a spot were to open up, you will be contacted as soon as possible (1-2 days prior) to attend the training.

A free lunch will be provided to all attendees after the training.
