Title: Suicide Prevention: Gatekeeper Training
Trainers: Greg Marley & NAMI Maine
Date/Time: April 7, 2015 8:30am - 4:00pm
Hours: .6 CEU's
Details:

Intended Audience: Department of Health and Human Services employees, Foster and Adoptive Parents and the staff of social service agencies providing services to clients and anyone who wants to learn about preventing suicide.

This training is one of a comprehensive set of strategies sponsored by the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, Center for Disease Control and Injury Prevention to prevent suicide in Maine. The training is a basic suicide prevention program that will explore common misconceptions about suicide, identify warning signs, clues, risk and protective factors, and teach intervention steps to prevent a suicide attempt. The training also acknowledges the impact and aftermath of suicidal behavior as well as a completed suicide. Each participant will receive resource materials they can use in their work with anyone at risk of suicide. The program is interactive with opportunities for discussion and practice of intervention skills. Gatekeepers are individuals, who by the nature of their job, their special interest in people, or in their personal relationships and friendships are in a position to recognize suicidal behavior, respond and refer for help. They may make the difference between life and death. Participants will not be expected to be "suicide experts" at the conclusion of the day, but can expect to have increased confidence in their ability to recognize and manage suicidal behavior. Preventing suicide is everyone's business and anyone can be a gatekeeper.
