This free workshop presented by trainer Keith Chauvette will share NAMI NH’s Connect program – a national Best Practice Program that promotes early detection and treatment of risk factors like mental illness and substance abuse disorders which can lead to suicidal thoughts, threats, attempts and deaths. During this 2-hour introductory course, participants will learn how to recognize the signs of suicide, how to respond and how to access services to help those who may be at risk.
