- Healthcare professionals

- All those interested in learning more!
For far too many years suicide prevention has not engaged the perspectives of those who have lived through suicidal experiences. Because of social stigma and fear, as well as personal shame, a culture of silence prevailed. This year's event is an opportunity to benefit from the lived experience of suicide attempt survivors. Elevate the Conversation training will also help serve as a bridge to developing a conversation about suicide prevention between mental health policy makers and consumer advocates.
The workshop is collaboratively supported by the Carson J Spencer Foundation, Colorado Psychological Association, Judi’s House, Suicide Prevention Coalition of Colorado, and University of Denver’s School of Social Work and Graduate School of Professional Psychology.
