Friday 13 July 2018 09:00am - 05:00pm



The Safe Space training has been designed by Grassroots as a suicide prevention and intervention model that focuses on the LGBTQ+ population and their increased risk for suicide. It is free for Howard County residents and those who work in the county. CEUs are available.

Through a dynamic combination of teaching, multimedia, activities, and open discussion, the training delves into the following topics:

      Challenges specific to LGBTQ+ people based on stigma, life experiences, and societal pressures

      Suicide risk in the LBGTQ+ population

      Talking to a person-at-risk about suicide

      Support these individuals and their loved ones in accessing care and treatment

      Differences in acceptance and tolerance

      History and evolution of language in the LGBTQ+ community

      Sexuality and gender specific issues, and their impacts on mental health

      Resources for those seeking to provide support to LBGTQ+ people

      How to create Safe Space within organizations and communities

The training program combines cultural competence with prevention and intervention strategies to reduce stigma, reduce suicidality, and ultimately save lives.
