Suicide Prevention Training Series (SPTS)
It’s time for a radical shift in Suicide Prevention Education.
In the Suicide Prevention Training Series (SPTS), we begin to understand the concept of suicide as a multifaceted social justice issue. We start by outlining the four types of oppression to re-define the concept of mental health. Then, we explore the social, cultural, and racial conditions that create suicidal risk factors in Latino/x and Black communities. We end by examining the protective factors of curiosity, compassion, and partnership offered by a Community Care approach to interrupt suicidal intent.
