Several low cost sessions are available to be completed by September 2008.
Potential costs – fees to secure your local training site, printing of materials, meals/snacks.

What is this training?
Strategic Planning for Suicide Prevention: Core Competencies (SPSP) was developed by the American Association of Suicidology in partnership with the Suicide Prevention Resource Center. SPRC is now partnering with the Suicide Prevention Action Network USA (SPAN USA) to disseminate the course.

Overall Goal

Participants also will increase their comfort and ability to communicate effectively about suicide and suicide prevention.
