Working to improve the lives of children and adults with mental illnesses and their families
NAMI Minnesota offers a two-day training which teaches those bereaved by suicide nationally recognized best practices for speaking safely and effectively about their loss.
Survivors of suicide loss are key partners in NAMI’s suicide prevention and postvention efforts. No one is more passionate about preventing further suicides and letting other survivors know they are not alone.
NAMI SurvivorVoices speakers are asked to present at our postvention trainings. Suicide loss survivors should have at least two years between the loss of their loved one and attending the SurvivorVoices training.
NAMI held a SurvivorVoices speakers training April 1-2 (pictured above) to teach survivors how to share their personal stories of suicide loss. If you are interested in being interviewed for this training, or would like more information on NAMI’s other suicide prevention programs, please contact Kara Bennett at 645-2948 x114.
