Are you an educator, school counselor, school nurse or youth group leader? The Lifeguard Workshop video is a learning tool specifically designed for you to help young people:
• Identify the challenges faced by LGBTQ people
• Recognize the warning signs of suicide
• Respond to someone who may be in crisis in a way that keeps themselves and their peers safe.
This video training is based on Trevor’s in-person workshop that is listed in the SPRC/AFSP Best Practice Registry for Suicide Prevention and is free of charge to educators and youth service providers. If you’re a student, we encourage you to talk to your teachers or school administrators about bringing suicide prevention to your school using this template.
Request a Trevor Resource Kit. The Trevor Resource Kit is full of helpful tools and materials that will help you make your Lifeguard Workshop a success. When you request a kit, you will be prompted to select either the download or DVD format. Simply choose whichever is best suited for your needs and we’ll include it along with the Resource Kit.
Complete this online interactive learning module to help you prepare. This online interactive training will help you to be better prepared to handle difficult questions that may come up during the workshop as well as help you learn when and how to ask a student if they are thinking about suicide: http://www.thetrevorproject.org/pages/step-in-speak-up.
