Umatter Suicide Prevention Awareness Training for the Agriculture Community
Members of the agricultural community are invited to join Farm First in this special training on suicide prevention. Participants will learn basic knowledge and skills of suicide prevention including societal myths and attitudes, use of sensitive language, risk factors and warning signs, protective factors, considerations for populations at risk, examples of what to say and do, and local and national resources for help. Participants use behavioral practice techniques to apply a three-step process for talking with someone who presents suicide risk. This Farm First adapted version focuses on the agricultural community.
Built on the foundation of connection and conversation, Umatter aims to enhance understanding of suicide risk and decrease the stigma of asking for help.
