Families First Parenting Workshops

Addressing self-harm and teen suicidality

(for youth, families, friends and caregivers of adolescents aged 14+)

This workshop will be helpful if you have any concerns about a friend, a family member or even yourself. Those that attend this workshop will learn the common signs that a youth may be self-harming or thinking about suicide, factors that can increase and decrease suicide risk, and what to do in crisis situations.

When: Tuesday, Feb. 27, 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Presenters: Presented by Jen Bulthuis, MSW, RSW, Child and Family Therapist, and Pamela Saa, MSW, RSW, Child and Family Therapist

Workshop will be run on a videoconferencing platform.
