Mental illness does not discriminate…anyone can be affected, regardless of age, race, religion, or income. However, people are still afraid to talk about it due to shame, misunderstanding, negative attitudes and fear of discrimination.
The Summit is committed to creating a well-informed and stigma free community by encouraging open conversations and education on mental health topics. We invite you to join us by scheduling one of the following trainings for your organization or business.
Signs of Suicide/ Trusted Adult Training – (1.5-Hr) Aimed for adults to recognize warning signs of suicide, how to navigate those difficult conversations, and learn practical next steps with youth. By the end of the training, individuals will be considered a “trusted adult” for youth to share their struggles or get support. Great for parents, volunteers, teachers, counselors, health professionals, or coaches. Signs of Suicide is an evidenced-based program designed for middle and high school students that teaches youth to identify signs of depression and suicide in themselves and their friends. The Trusted Adult training was developed as a resource for anyone that interacts with adolescents.
Soul Shop – (1.5-Hour or 8-Hour) Faith-based workshops aimed for individuals who work with youth and/or adults. This will equip leaders to recognize warnings signs of suicide, engaging in life saving conversations and ways to keep “at risk” individuals safe. Soul Shop also provides practical ways to integrate the material into lesson plans and activities. Great for church leaders, youth leaders, faith-based counselors, or volunteers working with youth/adults in a religious capacity.
Community Resiliency Model – (2-Hour or 8-Hour) CRM’s goal is to help to create “trauma-informed” and resiliency-focused” communities that share a common understanding of the impact of trauma and stress on the nervous system and how resiliency can be restored or increased using this skill-based approach.
Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) – (1.5-Hr) The QPR mission is to reduce suicidal behaviors and save lives by providing innovative, practical and proven suicide prevention training. The signs of crisis are all around us. We believe that quality education empowers all people, regardless of their background, to make a positive difference in the life of someone they know.
Connections Matter (4-Hr) – This course is designed to engage community members in building caring connections to improve resilience, prevent childhood trauma, and understand how our interactions with others can support those who have experienced trauma.
