Join us for this informative, one-hour webinar where we will demystify and destigmatize talking about suicide. During this session, we will explore some common suicide myths; how to use de-stigmatizing language when talking about suicide; and some basic tools we can use to respond to someone who discloses thoughts of suicide.
