Dr. Leslie Rogers is a psychologist, business owner and mental health advocate.
She is offering her 1-Day course to deep dive into the intricate subject of suicide and self-harm.

The Building Awareness Around Suicide class is a comprehensive and compassionate program designed to equip individuals with the knowledge, skills, and sensitivity necessary to address the critical issue of suicide. This class goes beyond the typical academic approach and focuses on fostering a supportive and empathetic community that actively works to reduce the stigma associated with mental health challenges.

The primary goal of this class is to empower participants with a deep understanding of the complexities surrounding suicide, including its risk factors, warning signs, and the impact on individuals, families, and communities. Facilitated by Dr. Leslie Rogers, the course combines theoretical knowledge with practical strategies to create a holistic learning experience.

Key components of the class include:

1. Educational Foundations: Participants will delve into the fundamental aspects of mental health, exploring the various factors that contribute to suicidal ideation and behavior. This section provides a solid foundation for understanding the multifaceted nature of mental health issues.

2. Identification and Intervention: The class emphasizes the importance of recognizing signs of distress and teaches participants effective communication and intervention techniques. By promoting open dialogue and active listening skills, attendees learn how to approach individuals struggling with suicidal thoughts with empathy and compassion.

3. Community Support: Building a supportive community is crucial in the fight against suicide. The class encourages participants to actively engage with others, fostering an environment where individuals feel comfortable seeking help without judgment. Community-building activities and discussions are integrated to strengthen the bonds within the group.

4. Resource Accessibility: Understanding available mental health resources is essential for effective support. The class provides information about local and national mental health organizations, crisis helplines, and community services, ensuring that participants are well-informed about where to turn for help and how to guide others in seeking assistance.

5. Self-Care and Resilience: Acknowledging the emotional toll of engaging with such a sensitive topic, the class dedicates time to self-care strategies. Participants learn to recognize and manage their own emotional well-being while supporting others, promoting a resilient and empathetic community.

This class is not only informative but also transformative, encouraging participants to become advocates for mental health and suicide prevention in their communities. By the end of the class, attendees will leave with a heightened awareness, practical skills, and a commitment to creating a more compassionate and supportive society for those facing mental health challenges.
