  • Share with them why suicide prevention is important to YOU and to your community
  • Educate them about the work being done in your community to prevent suicide
  • Teach them what more must be done to prevent suicide.

The event will include a brief training session on the basics of an effective advocacy visit and current policy issues. We will then go on several in-person visits with state legislators that will be scheduled ahead of time.

Suicide is the leading cause of death for Utah’s youth.

Help prevent youth suicide by learning how to identify and support an adolescent experiencing a mental health or substance use crisis. This training is designed to teach parents, teachers, coaches and anyone who regularly interacts with young people, how to identify and support an adolescent in crisis and thus reduce their risk of suicide. Anyone 18 or older can take YMHFA, but it is recommended for those who regularly have contact with young people ages 12 to 18.

First Aid of the Mental Health Variety

Studies have shown that mental health first aid training makes people feel more comfortable managing a crisis situation and helps build mental health literacy–helping the public identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness. We will take a wide-angle lens look at recognizing potential risk factors and warning signs for a range of mental health problems, including: depression, anxiety/trauma, psychosis and psychotic disorders, substance use disorders and self-injury. We will learn a 5-step action plan to help individuals in crisis connect with appropriate professional help & how to question someone who you feel might be suicidal.
