Dear PTS Community,
We are grateful for the large turnout and energetic participation of the PTS community at the suicide prevention workshop held on March 26th. Those who attended may feel free to contact David Duprey directly to request his thesis, which covers all components and methodology behind the training:firstname.lastname@example.org.
Based on the positive feedback from that session, we have asked David to present the second tier of this training platform which he has shared many times with military and civilian participants. We will offer the free, Tier II Suicide Prevention & Intervention workshop to all students, family members (high school age and older), staff and faculty on Wednesday, April 25, 2018, from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm in the Student Government Room on the second floor of the Mackay Campus Center. (Additional space will be provided if necessary.)
The Tier I training held on March 26th is not a prerequisite –those who missed it are more than welcome to attend. We will review the Tier I information, normalize our various reactions to this topic, and add several intervention tools to expand our capacity to be helpful when someone is struggling with suicidal thoughts.
Please RSVP to the Office of Student Counseling, so that we might plan space, handouts and light refreshments for the appropriate number of participants. Please email Christy.email@example.com or call 609-497-7890.
