Students Supporting Students: A Training Series - Starting a Conversation about Suicide

NIC has joined Selkirk College and College of the Rockies to offer a series of FREE Students Supporting Students Training Workshops

The Starting a Conversation about Suicide workshop offers sensitive, respectful and detailed training on suicide awareness and response. The training was developed to reduce the stigma around suicide and to help students acquire the skills and confidence to ask if someone they know is considering suicide, listen to that person in a non-judgmental way and refer them to appropriate resources. 

Registration closes 9 am on the Tuesday before the workshop.
