AFSP’s Talk Saves Lives™ is a leading suicide prevention education program in the US, covering the general scope of suicide, the research on prevention, and what people can do to fight this leading cause of death.
The newly updated module of this essential program, Talk Saves Lives™: An Introduction to Suicide Prevention in the LGBTQ Community gives participants an essential and lifesaving understanding of topics including:
- Suicide risk and its unique considerations in LGBTQ communities
- Recognizing suicide risk factors and warning signs for LGBTQ people
- Protective factors that can help lower the suicide rate
- The latest research related to LGBTQ suicide prevention
- How to seek and offer support for yourself or others
- Crisis resources and services for the LGBTQ community

We all have a role to play in preventing suicide, and those in the LGBTQ community may face additional challenges and barriers to help because of discriminatory factors. This new program informs more people of the best ways to provide caring and support to those who need it. Counseling and Psychological Services staff will be available in Ellie’s Place before and after this event with giveaways and to answer questions and provide resources.
