Training in Suicide prevention

Fifty-four persons from across the country have received training in Suicide Prevention through a partnership between the Youth Resilience and Inclusive Social Empowerment (RISE) Project, Galen University, and COBEC. The workshops were one of the first activities under the recently launched Youth Rise Project and took place in Cayo and Stann Creek between June 8th and 13th, 2017.  Participants included persons who actively work with youths. The training included how to assess and recognize possible suicide cases; how to respond and provide basic counseling to persons at-risk; and also looked at strengthening service networks to know when, how and to whom to refer. The Youth Rise Project is implemented by the Government of Belize via the Ministry of Human Development, Social Transformation & Poverty Alleviation and public sector and social partners with funding from the Caribbean Development Bank and the Government of Belize. vlcsnap-2017-06-15-10h16m50s023 vlcsnap-2017-06-15-10h16m46s786 vlcsnap-2017-06-15-10h16m44s042 vlcsnap-2017-06-15-10h16m40s867 vlcsnap-2017-06-15-10h16m37s728 vlcsnap-2017-06-15-10h16m34s979
