There is little more frightening for a pastor or youth leader than when a young person confides that they are having thoughts of harming or killing themselves. This workshop is intended for church pastors, youth minister and directors of religion education to help prepare them to respond to youth in their fellowship who might be experiencing depression, anxiety and suicidality. They will learn basic pastoral intervention that can help keep a youth safe and will be provided community mental health resources to support the youth and the family.

The cost of the workshop is $40. Registration and payment are due by noon on July25. You may register online at
