Silent Suffers: Talking About Suicide
When an individual completes suicide, ramifications reverberate out for families, churches, and
the wider community, too. Clergy and faith communities can play an important role in talking
about and helping prevent suicides. This workshop will focus on the warning signs of someone
who may be thinking about suicide and what to do if you identify them. It also considers how to
create a culture of suicide prevention within congregations. This workshop is designed for
clergy, congregational members, and anyone who wants to learn more about steps to take to
help prevent suicides.
You have colleagues, congregation members and family members that are struggling with thoughts of suicide.
Guest presenter: Dr. Stephen Delisi, Medical Director (Professional Education and Continuum Solutions) and Assistant Professor (Hazelden Betty Ford Graduate School of Addiction Studies)
