Thank you to everyone who submitted.

NOTE: This year's conference format has changed from one and a half days, with a half day of pre-conference workshops to a full day of pre-conference workshops and two days of conference.

Promoting Diversity and Inclusion in Suicide Prevention.

Breakout and keynote sessions will focus on promising evidence-based practices that decrease the likelihood of suicide, assist those who struggle with suicidal thinking, and help survivors of suicide loss regain their equilibrium following a loved one’s suicide attempt or death by suicide.  In an attempt to address as many different areas of inclusion and diversity along with learning a variety of perspectives and experiences, panel presentations are recommended this year. Please keep in mind that you only have one hour which includes Q&A. 

Call for presentations is now closed.

safeTALK is a three-hour training program, hosted by AFSP Colorado Chapter, that will prepare anyone age 15 or older to identify individuals at risk of suicide and connect them to mental health first aid resources.

This training will equip you with the tools to:

          • Move beyond common tendencies to miss, dismiss, or avoid suicide;
          • Identify individuals at risk of suicide;
          • Apply the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen, and KeepSafe) to connect those individuals to suicide first aid/intervention caregivers.
Powerful videos will illustrate both alert and non-alert responses. We will also discuss and practice tactics that will contribute to saving lives.

Register through this link soon because space is limited!
