You’re invited for EHN Canada’s first educational webinar of 2021:
With Reza Toghrol, Registered Occupational Therapist and Primary Counsellor at Bellwood Health Services
And Amanda Meier, Registered Social Worker, Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital
This past year has been unlike any other. We know that loneliness and isolation are major contributing factors to deteriorating mental health and suicidal ideation. The necessary safety precautions associated with COVID-19 have only worsened this, with a higher number of people reporting suicidal thoughts and/or behaviours compared to pre-pandemic times. But being alone doesn’t have to mean feeling alone. Finding ways to connect with and check in on people who may be struggling goes a long way to showing them they are cared for – prevention is key. And if someone you know is at risk of suicide, knowing how to respond can make all the difference in the moment.
The discussion points include:
- Reasons that people develop suicidal ideation
- How to recognize the signs and symptoms in someone at risk of suicide
- Strategies or interventions that can be used to prevent suicide
- When and how to seek help
Date: Thursday, January 14, 2021
Time: Noon-1pm EST, 9-10am PST
This webinar provides 1.0 CEU credits recognized by the CACCF (Canadian Addiction Counsellors Certification Federation) and the CCPA (Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy Association).
