Don't Jump! Effectively Engaging A Person Who is Suicidal
What to say and what to avoid saying
NEW!
  

In this presentation I use both behavioral health theory as well as my own experience dealing with suicidal thoughts for over 25 years to help providers understand the mindset of someone suffering from severe depression. I talk about specific coping strategies that have helped me on many occasions and I also mention certain things you should avoid saying or doing in deescalating these situations.
