As peer support workers, we will sometimes support folks who are thinking of dying by suicide. This participatory workshop is intended to support ourselves, fellow staff, and service recipients to engage in conversations about suicide in ways that prioritize compassion, empathy, and autonomy. We’ll spend time unpacking suicide as a language of pain, then consider ways to support folks who are thinking about dying. Through sharing personal stories, opening up dialogue, and practicing difficult conversations, we will educate and support each other to remain curious, lean into discomfort, and center mutuality.
Training schedule: Tuesday 6/21, 9:00am-5:00pm (1-hour lunch, 15-min break in the morning, 15-min break in the afternoon)
