As a faith community leader, you are well positioned to play an active role in the lives of those affected by substance abuse, mental illness and suicide. Clergy and faith leaders can foster a sense of connection among individuals and a feeling of belonging as a whole that can be so essential. It is also important to encourage your members to reach out to anyone who may be experiencing mental health or substance abuse problems, including individuals on the periphery of the community. Strengthening connectedness to community is an important factor in decreasing risk for suicide, and encouraging those who are in need of help to seek professionals who can assist them.
 
Topics Include:
• Significance of faith community in recovery and prevention
• Importance of faith leaders in substance abuse recovery
• QPR Training for Suicide Prevention – Question, Persuade, Refer
• Resources available in your area
• Opportunity to ask questions and collaborate with faith community leaders
 
Who Should Attend?
Clergy and faith community leaders and organization members who are concerned about mental health, suicide and substance abuse prevention and recovery in our communities.
