Samaritans Elder Suicide Prevention Training Coming to Eastham

February 20th at Four Points

This suicide prevention training led by The Samaritans on Cape Cod and the Islands is designed to reduce the incidence of suicide among adults age 55 and older. This training is open to the public and is appropriate for anyone who has contact with older adults during their professional, personal, or volunteer activities. After the training, participants will be able to: understand the warning signs of suicide in older adults; develop strategies for early intervention and prevention; identify risk factors, levels or risk, and protective factors for suicide in older adults; and learn effective methods for active listening and engagement with older adults who are suicidal.

This training is available free of charge.

We are able to offer 7.0 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to Registered Nurses, Social Workers and Licensed Mental Health Clinicians.

All participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
