LivingWorks Start - Online Suicide Prevention Skills Training - Shine Week Mental Health Training

 

LivingWorks Start is a groundbreaking new way to learn suicide prevention skills. In an hour or two online, the program teaches trainees to recognize when someone is thinking about suicide and connect them to help and support. When you sign up for LivingWorks Start training, you'll learn a powerful four-step model to keep someone safe from suicide, and you'll have a chance to practice it with impactful simulations. Safety resources and support are available throughout the program. 

The University of Guelph community is welcome to take part in this online, independent training. Those who register will be required to attend a brief meeting online prior to the training, or watch a brief online video, before being provided access to the independent session. 

RSVP here in GryphLife and you will be invited to a meeting on Tuesday, November 10th at 8:30am to start things off! Watch that session at any point throughout the day and you will then receive access to the Start online module. An optional debrief meeting will be scheduled online for 7 pm.

Beyond the Books - Shine Week Mental Health Training

October 20th, 2020 4:35 PM
Beyond the Books - Shine Week Mental Health Training

Beyond the Books is a face to face session that will first provide participants with general information on the prevalence of mental challenges and illness. It will then help participants to identify signs of troubling behaviour and give them skills to engage in a preliminary discussion to determine if referral to a professional is necessary.

 

Participants will also learn how and where to refer appropriately in a compassionate and effective manner. This session is designed for individuals who do not have ongoing relationships with individuals but whose roles are such that they may have one-off, in-depth conversations. Instructors are qualified from the Wellness Education Centre.

 

RSVP here in GryphLife and you will be invited to a meeting on Tuesday, November 10th at 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM.
