Description
This training is a suicide and cultural competence course and will satisfy 3 CEU of Suicide Prevention and Cultural Competency.  The intermediate course will cover principles of suicide postvention, law enforcement, military, first responders, and other professions whose cultures of stigma often inhibit care access.

At the end of this course, attendees will:

  • improve their understanding of the stigma related to mental health care among the medicine, EMS, law enforcement and veteran communities
  • learn how to validate the experiences of various professionals who traditionally do not seek counseling;
  • increase their empathy and understanding related to the medicine, EMS, law enforcement and veteran communities;
  • improve their understanding of the daily work involved with medicine, EMS, law enforcement and veteran communities;
  • improve advocacy and outreach efforts in order to remove care barriers, both perceived and real, within the various professions presented

The advanced course covers basic firearms training and use, including live fire, along with a comprehensive understanding of the broad-based literature on firearms, plus mental health policy and advocacy. Details about the advanced course will be sent at a later date
