- become aware of truths and myths associated with suicide and suicide prevention, as well as avoiding the stigma associated with mental health issues and suicide.
- learn and be able to teach their students how to identify the warning signs and learn to understand and even help someone in need.
- be able to practice effective dialogue with open communication that is direct, clear, and provides honest information that may help foster important conversations that lead to meaningful discussions with their students.
At the end of the session, participants will be able to describe the truths and myths associated with suicide and suicide prevention as well as identify the warning signs of suicide, and practice open communication strategies to facilitate meaningful discussions with students about suicide.
