During a staff meeting last week we had a presentation on Suicide Prevention by Alex Yannacone from CU Johnson Depression Center. The information was so well organized and informative that I thought I should share. First of all, everyone should put the suicide prevention number in their phone. (800)273-TALK (8255). If you live in Colorado, the Colorado Crisis Center is a 24 hour hotline also that you should use (844)493-TALK (8255). If you live outside of Colorado, check your state’s resources.
We watched Kevin Hines video about being one of 20 other people who jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge and lived to talk about it.
We also watched and talked about the empathy video by Brene Brown “I don’t know what to say right now, but thank you for sharing with me.”
