El sufrimiento no siempre se nota.

A diario en California, nuestros hijos, familiares, amigos, y compañeros de trabajo luchan con el dolor emocional. Y para muchos es muy difícil hablar acerca de su sufrimiento y sentimientos suicidas o expresar su necesidad de ayuda. Sin embargo, aunque las señales de advertencia pueden ser sutiles, siempre están presentes. Si reconocemos estas señales y aprendemos como comenzar una conversación y donde ir a buscar ayuda, tendremos el poder de hacer una gran diferencia – el poder de salvar una vida.

RECONOZCA
LAS SEÑALES

Si observa aunque sea una de estas señales, actúe o diga algo inmediatamente.

http://sutter.networkofcare.org/mh/index.aspx

The Network of Care for Behavioral Health (www.Sutter.networkofcare.org), first developed in California, is a highly innovative use of Internet communication technology designed to serve individuals and families at the community level. Because of the multiple ways health and human services programs are funded, the services themselves are often fragmented locally and difficult to understand or navigate.   This Web site is a resource for individuals, families and agencies concerned with behavioral health. It provides information about behavioral health services, laws, and related news, as well as communication tools and other features. Regardless of where you begin your search for assistance with behavioral health issues, the Network of Care helps you find what you need - it helps ensure that there is "No Wrong Door" for those who need services. This Web site can greatly assist in our efforts to protect our greatest human asset - our beautiful minds.   The listings in the Service Directory and Announcement Newsletters Link are provided for information only and are not meant to endorse any particular agency or service.  Webmaster for our website is  John Floe, MAOM Prevention Services Coordinator Sutter - Yuba Mental Health Services jfloe@co.sutter.ca.us  or (530) 674-1885 ext. 114 1965 Live Oak Blvd Yuba City, CA 95991


Yellow Ribbon Campaign

Phone: John Floe 530.674.1885, ext 114; Email: jfloe@co.sutter.ca.us

http://www.yellowribbon.org/Chapters.htm

The Yellow Ribbon Suicide Prevention Program began in September of 1994, after the suicide of seventeen-year-old Mike Emme. When friends and peers offered their condolences to Mike’s parents they asked what they could do to help. Mike’s parents encouraged anyone who was contemplating suicide to reach out to someone and seek help. The response was the development of this community based outreach program that empowers communities through education and collaboration.


 

Trainings

Safe TALK Yuba Sutter Counties

530-674-1885 ext. 114

www.sutter.networkofcare.org

safeTALK, about three hours in duration, is a training that prepares anyone over the age of 15 to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources. Most people with thoughts of suicide invite help to stay safe. Alert helpers know how to use these opportunities to support that desire for safety. As a safeTALK-trained suicide alert helper, you will be better able to:

  • move beyond common tendencies to miss, dismiss or avoid suicide;
  • identify people who have thoughts of suicide;
  • apply the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe) to connect a person with suicide thoughts to suicide first aid, intervention caregivers.

Over 950,000 caregivers have received this training. Just as "CPR" skills make physical first aid possible, training in suicide intervention develops the skills needed for suicide first aid. ASIST is a two-day (15 hours) intensive, interactive and practice-dominated course designed to help caregivers recognize risk and learn how to intervene to prevent the immediate risk of suicide. John Floe 530-674-1885 ext. 114   JFloe@co.sutter.ca.us

http://groups.dcn.org/spyc/programs

Suicide Prevention and Crisis Services of Yolo County facilitates a “Friends and Family of Suicide Loss” support group for adults. The effect on friends and family of suicide loss can be overwhelming. Survivors of suicide loss often state that no other loss has been as painful or confusing. Additional feelings of guilt, anger, and sadness can create a complicated grief process. In a group with others who have shared a similar loss, support comes from exploring, sharing, and clarifying feelings. Because suicide grief can have an ongoing impact, individuals are encouraged to consider attending no matter how long ago the suicide occurred. At various times during the year, the group generally meets for eight consecutive Wednesday evenings at the Suicide Prevention business office in Davis.

http://sutter.networkofcare.org/mh/index.aspx

The Network of Care for Behavioral Health (www.Sutter.networkofcare.org), first developed in California, is a highly innovative use of Internet communication technology designed to serve individuals and families at the community level. Because of the multiple ways health and human services programs are funded, the services themselves are often fragmented locally and difficult to understand or navigate.   This Web site is a resource for individuals, families and agencies concerned with behavioral health. It provides information about behavioral health services, laws, and related news, as well as communication tools and other features. Regardless of where you begin your search for assistance with behavioral health issues, the Network of Care helps you find what you need - it helps ensure that there is "No Wrong Door" for those who need services. This Web site can greatly assist in our efforts to protect our greatest human asset - our beautiful minds.   The listings in the Service Directory and Announcement Newsletters Link are provided for information only and are not meant to endorse any particular agency or service.  Webmaster for our website is  John Floe, MAOM Prevention Services Coordinator Sutter - Yuba Mental Health Services jfloe@co.sutter.ca.us  or (530) 674-1885 ext. 114 1965 Live Oak Blvd Yuba City, CA 95991


Yellow Ribbon Campaign

Phone: John Floe 530.674.1885, ext 114; Email: jfloe@co.sutter.ca.us

http://www.yellowribbon.org/Chapters.htm

The Yellow Ribbon Suicide Prevention Program began in September of 1994, after the suicide of seventeen-year-old Mike Emme. When friends and peers offered their condolences to Mike’s parents they asked what they could do to help. Mike’s parents encouraged anyone who was contemplating suicide to reach out to someone and seek help. The response was the development of this community based outreach program that empowers communities through education and collaboration.


 

Trainings

Safe TALK Yuba Sutter Counties

530-674-1885 ext. 114

www.sutter.networkofcare.org

safeTALK, about three hours in duration, is a training that prepares anyone over the age of 15 to identify persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them to suicide first aid resources. Most people with thoughts of suicide invite help to stay safe. Alert helpers know how to use these opportunities to support that desire for safety. As a safeTALK-trained suicide alert helper, you will be better able to:

  • move beyond common tendencies to miss, dismiss or avoid suicide;
  • identify people who have thoughts of suicide;
  • apply the TALK steps (Tell, Ask, Listen and KeepSafe) to connect a person with suicide thoughts to suicide first aid, intervention caregivers.

The Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) workshop is for caregivers who want to feel more comfortable, confident and competent in helping to prevent the immediate risk of suicide. Over 950,000 caregivers have received this training. Just as "CPR" skills make physical first aid possible, training in suicide intervention develops the skills needed for suicide first aid. ASIST is a two-day (15 hours) intensive, interactive and practice-dominated course designed to help caregivers recognize risk and learn how to intervene to prevent the immediate risk of suicide. John Floe 530-674-1885 ext. 114   JFloe@co.sutter.ca.us
