Continuing Education with Applause

"I learned that the scope of my knowledge of suicide and the prevention of suicide is very slim. I learned to not be so opinionated about the whole idea of suicide. The person thinking of suicide needs me to be there for them and not judgmental of their situation."

"Melissa did a great job! Her facilitation style was very approachable and it felt like folks in the training were comfortable leaning in, despite the content being difficult. Thank you for sharing your time and expertise with us."

"I really enjoyed the presentation and how interactive it was. The websites and phone numbers for resources was very helpful!"

"Training was more interactive and personalized than other suicide assessment trainings that I have been to."
