Suicide Prevention - Local Training Opportunity!
One of the biggest needs identified following our April 7th Suicide Prevention Summit was the need for training for companies on how to incorporate suicide prevention/mental health  awareness in to their companies.  

Sally Spencer-Thomas will be in town on Thursday, October 20th to deliver her Working Minds training to answer this need.  Save the date now, registration will be available soon. Thanks to McCarthy for hosting this full day training!  

This session will be ideal for HR, safety and management personnel - once complete with this training they will be able to train others within their companies.  Visit the Working Minds website to learn more and stay tuned for registration information.  Dave James or Michelle Walker are available for questions.
