PABLO — A two-day Applied Suicide Intervention Skill Training will be offered Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 14-15 from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. at Salish Kootenai College in rooms 102 and 104 inside the Math and Science Building #67. 

Participants must arrive on time both days. Breakfast and lunch provided will be provided during the two-day workshop.

Those who complete the workshop are eligible to receive 14 education units.

— Is patient and cares enough to listen 

— Can talk about suicide openly and honestly

— Will ask direct questions about suicide

— Is able to offer hope 

— Is able to keep the person safe until resources are accessed

— Is familiar with local resources and national hotlines
