Be Equipped

Anchored Ambassadors

Encounters with individuals in an emotional emergency may not happen often. Knowing what to say and do can make a difference. 


Suicide Prevention is a national effort. No matter where you live, work or worship, resources are available to you. To #StopOne takes more than initiatives, it takes individuals who are empowered through the knowledge that they CAN be the ONE to #StopOne. 


Below are links to more in depth training programs offered around the nation. Even rural area residents have opportunities to access training through  videos and online course material. Don't wait until tomorrow - someone you meet might need you today!
