Murphy, MA, LMSW (Members of Washtenaw Alive, a suicide prevention community collaboration.) This program will teach participants to be alert to the signs of suicidal thinking among individuals in recovery. It will help participants to recognize the signs of suicidal thinking, learn how to reach out and offer support, know how to reach out and ask for help when suicidal thoughts are present, and be aware of local and national suicide prevention and intervention resources and how to access these resources. This program is part of the FREE, annual Dawn Farm Education Series. Our presentations offer helpful information that supports chemically dependent people in achieving, maintaining, and strengthening their recoveries. The series educates family members on issues relating to addiction and its effect on the family, and offers information that will be useful for friends and family members in relating to addicts whether they are actively using or in recovery. Professionals and students will also benefit from this pertinent information. All programs are free and open to anyone interested. Registration is not required. 1.5 hours of free C.E. approved by MCBAP (Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals) is offered for each workshop. A certificate to document attendance is provided on request. The Education Series is organized by Dawn Farm, a non-profit community of programs providing a continuum of chemical dependency services.
