Safe Space Training

Safe Space Training

  • October 24, 2018
    8:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Safe Space training has been designed by Grassroots as a suicide prevention and intervention model that focuses on the LGBTQ+ population and their increased risk for suicide. It is free for Howard County residents and those who work in the county. CEUs are available.

Through a dynamic combination of teaching, multimedia, activities, and open discussion, the training delves into the following topics:

  • Challenges specific to LGBTQ+ people based on stigma, life experiences, and societal pressures
  • Suicide risk in the LBGTQ+ population
  • Talking to a person-at-risk about suicide
  • Support these individuals and their loved ones in accessing care and treatment
  • Differences in acceptance and tolerance
  • History and evolution of language in the LGBTQ+ community
  • Sexuality and gender specific issues, and their impacts on mental health
  • Resources for those seeking to provide support to LBGTQ+ people
  • How to create Safe Space within organizations and communities

The training program combines cultural competence with prevention and intervention strategies to reduce stigma, reduce suicidality, and ultimately save lives.
