As Catholics, it is our mission to be beacons of light and hope for those suffering in darkness. However, to do this, it’s necessary to be equipped with the proper tools. How do you express your concern for someone? How do you ask someone if they’re considering suicide? What do you say when they say yes? These situations are tough, but REACH is a program designed off of years of research to address the magnitude of the suicide epidemic and teach how to recognize the signs, engage with empathy, ask directly about suicide, communicate hope, and help suicidal individuals access care and treatment.
Suicide prevention is a shared campus responsibility. Join the REACH movement. Save a life. #REACH5K
Anyone can help prevent suicide by learning the risks, warning signs, and how to intervene. The training is designed to last a full 90 minutes. Join us on Tuesday, Feb. 27 at 6:30 p.m. at the Newman Center for this training. Open to all members of our community.
