Suicidal behaviour in children age 12 or younger is a subject of growing concern for those who work with children. Suicidal thoughts and attempts in children have sometimes been overlooked, denied or ignored. Tattered Teddies is an interactive half-day workshop which examines warning signs in a child and explores intervention strategies through stories and case studies.
Cost: FREE thanks to funding from the Government of Alberta (normally $110) and the City of Medicine Hat providing the room free of charge. Limited space available for professionals in the social services field. We know that when people are thinking about suicide they most often reach out for support from family and friends. This free training is being made available to increase suicide intervention skills in our community with a priority for general community members. Starts at 1 p.m.
