How will this conference help me to grow as a person or professional?

STEP 1: Identify the issues
Through this conference, we will identify and understand how recent national and worldwide unrest has affected mental health and increased the potential risk for suicide in the general public, school-age children/facility and staff, mental health consumers; as well as their clinicians/caregivers.

STEP 2: Prepare you with the skills needed to prevent suicide
This conference will help prepare the attendee with specific skills to recognize various suicidal warning signs across the lifespan, identify resources to foster assistance, and equip them with tools to intervene during a crisis while the American culture is facing extraordinary challenges.

STEP 3: Thrive in your home and business (and help others do the same)
Our overarching theme is to increase people’s ability to cope, attaining and remaining resilient, gaining awareness of suicide preventing strategies and local/national resources.

LCSPC and Conference Mission:

The conference enhances Lancaster County Suicide Prevention Coalition’s (LCSPCs) mission in “partnering to create a responsive, compassionate community and to eliminate suicide through education, advocacy, and support. Together, we envision a community free of the stigma associated with suicide and mental illness that is supportive of all those affected by suicide.”
