City Year by Back Bay T

Oftentimes, community leaders are sought out for support in times of crisis
and are the first to become aware that someone is considering killing
themselves. To support my fellow community leaders, I'm offering a training
on how to deal with one of the hardest topics faced by any community. For
the purpose of these trainings, I've defined "community leader" as anyone
who regularly convenes groups of people. If that's you, I hope you'll join
me. If not, please share this with a community leader in your life. Attend
this training to gain the skills to handle the "suicide question" and
become knowledgeable about local resources for you and your community.*
