LEARN webinar on suicide prevention training
It can be easy to feel disconnected during the COVID-19 pandemic as people are not able to participate in their community as before. Experts recognize the increased levels of stress and anxiety across almost every family in the nation and the world. That's why Christopher DeCou, clinical psychologist at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, and Jennifer Stuber, director of Forefront Suicide Prevention, recorded a webinar for parents to learn how to recognize signs of distress and respond to someone at risk of suicide.
"Suicide prevention is something that we all need to know. It’s something like CPR," Stuber said.
DeCou and Stuber added it's important to take proactive steps to lock up the means people can use to harm themselves, like firearms or medications. For more steps and skills people can learn, watch the webinar for free here.
