Suicide Awareness and Prevention CLE
August 16, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
This CLE, sponsored by the ASB Quality of Life, Health and Wellness Committee, teaches lawyers how to recognize the warning signs of suicide and how to talk with someone who may be at risk for suicide. You will also learn tips for persuading at-risk individuals to get help through available resources. This 1-hour CLE is limited to 105 people. If this course is full, we are also holding the same session 8.17.22 at noon.
The mission of the SAM Foundation is to prevent suicide through public awareness and education by equipping our communities with the skills to intervene in a suicidal crisis. Our hope is to change the way our communities view mental health and serve as a resource to those who have been affected by suicide and therefore making our communities more suicide safe.
The SAM Foundation believes all members of communities play a vital role in suicide prevention. Through our evidence based trainings, the SAM Foundation reaches a variety of community members, corporate groups, educators, first responders and mental health professionals. The problem of suicide is considered a nationwide problem and these trainings provide the tools and resources to combat this problem.
