Suicide Prevention from a Racial Justice Lens Part 1
Presented by Ysabel Garcia, of Estoy Aquí LLC. This is the first of a two-part workshop exploring the social and cultural factors that create risk and/or protection for suicide in Latinx and Black communities. This workshop also offers an overview of community care values that can be used to support those in distress. At the end of the two-part workshop, participants will be able to: identify specific social and cultural factors that create risk and/or protection for suicide in Latinx and Black communities; deconstruct suicide myths and taboos that exist in our language, culture, and media; recognize the signs that indicate someone might be at risk of suicide; and apply community care values to support those in distress.
