World Suicide Prevention Day is
September 10, 2018.
Schools have just started in the Northern hemisphere, and the reports of students suicides are already coming in, including a nine year old student in Denver, CO USA. Suicide Rates have risen in Colorado 34% since 1999 and are at an all time high, according to the Colorado Health Institute.
Worldwide, 800,000 people die by suicide every year, according to the World Health Organization. Last year, three Denver area teens ended their lives by suicide in the first few weeks of the school year. Two of them were in Littleton, where I live and work.
One of them has been described to me by those who knew him as a CASIGY – a Creative, Acutely Aware, Super-Sensitive, and Gifted You.
This drives home the need to get real about suicide in CASIGYs. That’s exactly what we’re doing in my FREE Webinar, recorded just on year ago: Suicide Prevention for Creative Highly Sensitive or Gifted Teens. We also welcome their parents and educators.
If you’ve ever been concerned about suicide for yourself or for a creative, sensitive or gifted teen or adult you know, this is for you.
In this webinar, my goal is to equip adults and parents, teachers and creative, sensitive and gifted teens to Prevent Suicide!
Here’s what I talk about in this FREE Webinar:
Suicide Prevention for Creative Highly Sensitive or Gifted People:
- What’s actually happening with suicides of youth and adults around the world
- Six Myths about suicide
- Seven common themes of suicides
- Suicide risk factors
- What’s different with highly creative, highly sensitive & gifted teens and adults, AKA CASIGYs
- Suicide Warning Signs
- Six Protective factors against Suicide – and how to maximize them
- Five things you can do to prevent suicide
I’ll also reveal what I’ve learned through the years from working with my CASIGY (creative, highly sensitive or gifted) clients – children, teens and adults, and countless conversations we have had about their mixed feelings about living and staying on this planet.
In this Webinar, I’ll impart what I learned when I worked in a local Psychiatric Hospital, talking with people who had been admitted because of their suicidal thoughts, plans and attempts. I’ll disclose what I’ve learned working in Intensive Care Units of Medical Hospitals, talking with people who survived their suicide attempts … and the families of those who didn’t survive.
This webinar will not include a sales pitch for anything. There is nothing to buy, only urgently important information for you, your friends and family on how to understand suicide, and how to prevent it.
