•Assess for risk of suicide or harm
•Give reassurance and information
•Encourage appropriate professional help
•Encourage self-help and other support strategies
This course is provided FREE of charge for anyone who lives or works in Adams County, thanks to generous support from the Community Reach Center Foundation Board. Otherwise, the registration fee is $35. All participants MUST be registered - drop-ins are not permitted.
