How to Tell Your Story is a National Best Practice program that teaches loss survivors how to speak safely and effectively about their loss. Survivors of suicide loss are key partners in suicide prevention and postvention. No one is more passionate about preventing further suicides and letting other survivors know they are not alone.
Stories of suicide loss told from the heart are powerful. They promote healing for those who are newly bereaved, educate the public about how to support survivors of suicide loss, and increase awareness of suicide risk factors and warning signs.
While you may complete this 2-day training and never share your story publicly, participation in the training helps you with your own grief process and connects you with other survivors. If you do go on to share your story publicly, you will use this new connectedness to energize suicide prevention and awareness.
LOSS staff members have been trained by the NAMI New Hampshire Connect Program staff to train others.
A maximum of 8 people participate in a 2-Day How To Tell Your Story training.
