Suicide Support – Specific upcoming Workshops
Statistics can tell us alot, but don’t tell us everything. However, suicides continue to shake our communities. These tragic events challenge our basic assumptions, and leave families, co workers, and friends questioning whether enough is being done to prevent these deaths. Mental health problems have an enormous impact on the general public and our First Responders who deal with responding to the 911 calls. The kind of burden represented by mental health on our First Responders and their families is alarming.
Locally, our First Responders – Policing, Fire Fighters, Emergency Medical Services, and 911 Dispatch- respond to all of these calls, doing their very best to save lives or comfort family members after delivering heartbreaking news of suicides. Mental illness has a direct relationship with suicide, criminal offences, and civil unrest. Our Correctional Officers (dealing with convicted criminals} and our Military Personnel (combating terrorism around the world} also face many challenges invoked by the sights, sounds, and residual carnage of broken societies.
Legacy encourages the utilization of the Centre for Suicide Prevention for it’s training. The CSP equips the student with information, knowledge and skills necessary to respond to the risk of suicide.
Legacy continues to provide education bursary support to our personnel to better understand the subject of suicide. Please contact us directly to further discuss cost sharing support.
