Mental Health Education Series for Faith Community Leaders and Members- All are welcome
presented by the Interfaith Counseling Center and Bradley Hospital
Presenters: Kim Lafountain, LMHC; Scott Sylvester, LMHC Location: Bradley Learning Exchange, 3300 Pawtucket Avenue, East Providence, RI
The Bradley Learning Exchange will present this 3 hour training based on the evidenced based Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) Screener. The C-SSRS sup-ports suicide risk assessment through a series of simple, plain-language questions that anyone can ask. The answers help users identify whether someone is at risk for suicide. This training will help participants become comfortable with asking one of the most difficult questions to ask. It will also review available resources that participants can use to help an at-risk person in their community. The C-SSRS screener is suited for use by family members, friends, and others who have a personal relationship with the individual who may be at risk.
