  • Whitney Place at Sharon 675 South Main Street Sharon, MA 02067 (map)

HESSCO and CHNA 7 are pleased to offer a suicide and aging gatekeeper training in collaboration with the Samaritans of Merrimack Valley. The goal of this four hour training is to educate people in the community who work with the elder population about mental health and suicide in an effort to better address suicide prevention efforts. The training will cover statistics, facts, risk signs and warning factors, risk assessment, how to talk with someone at risk as well as resources to help that person. The capacity for this training is limited to 25 so make sure you register soon. Refreshments will be served. 3.5 CEUs will be given to social workers and nurses.
