A Recovery and Growth Workshop
"So much of our time is spent on suicide risk assessment and management, which is obviously important – but when you’re through that, what’s the next thing? I think Suicide to Hope is going to fill the gap for that. It gives people a roadmap for recovery and growth-oriented work with the people they’re trying to support.” -- Sally Spencer-Thomas, CEO & Co-Founder, Carson J Spencer Foundation
Suicide to Hope is a one-day workshop designed for clinicians and professional caregivers that do long-term work with persons recently at risk of suicide. Working within the ‘clinician therapeutic approach’, it provides tools to help caregivers and persons with experience of suicide work to develop achievable and significant recovery and growth plans.
