    Student safeTALK Trainings
    Parent & Community Informational Meetings

    I conduct the meetings once a year in each site. Students receive resource booklet, a certificate, a card and a sticker. For more information the website for the safeTALK is www.livingworks.net.

    For parents I give them Suicide Prevention information, steps to take when sad, depressed, suicidal or any of the negative emotions.
    February I received a certificate for Mental Health First Aid. I already use the steps and training during the Student safeTALK Training and Parent & Community Informational Meetings I conduct.
