Preventing Suicides With Training, Faith & Action
Our Suicide Awareness Training program teaches how to reduce the risk of suicide by recognizing signs, asking tough questions, and connecting those at risk to an intervention resource for more specialized support. Our classes are available at the lowest rates for communities from teenagers in middle school high school to military veterans and first responders. The life-saving skills learned using SafeTalk techniques are perfect for organizations and individuals serious about suicide prevention.
An interactive conference & social media campaign for 12 to 24 year-olds designed to eliminate suicide as an option. Complete with sporting events, a concert, motivational life speakers, prizes & more!
We understand there may be socio-economic factors that contribute to a high suicide rates within a region. This is why we also get involved with humanitarian efforts like serving & giving to the poor & abused internationally. We appreciate our partners who contribute to The A.T.O.! Together we have donated food & supplies to places like an Orphanage & Widow’s Home in Sierra Leone to the Soweto Slums in Nairobi, Kenya.
