Umatter Suicide Prevention Awareness Training of Trainers
When prepared, anyone can respond when someone needs help.
Suicide is preventable and one of the first steps is to create awareness. Join us and become equipped to facilitate Umatter Suicide Awareness workshops in your community or place of work. You will gain the skills, knowledge, confidence, and materials to bring suicide prevention awareness to your community. You will help others identify signs and symptoms of suicide, risk and protective factors, when and how to refer for more help, and how to access resources.

• Mandatory Webinar Attendance
Attendance is required at one of the Umatter Suicide Awareness and Practice Webinars prior to participating in this training.
Umatter® Suicide Prevention Awareness and Practice is an interactive, 60-minute virtual workshop. Umatter® is a national best practice program for suicide prevention. The message behind Umatter® is “you matter because you may need help, and you matter because you may be in a position to help.” Through presentation and experiential learning with a time for you to practice a three-step process, you will learn why suicide prevention is important, what the risk and protective factors for suicide are, how to recognize a warning sign, what to say and do, and how to get help. Resources for ongoing help and support will be provided.
