Crisis line training sessions start soon

By From page A4 | October 04, 2013

Community members can play a role in saving the lives of their friends and neighbors by volunteering to answer Suicide Prevention of Yolo County’s crisis line. Volunteers undergo a 36-hour training program in which they develop the skills needed to manage issues of depression, suicide, family relationship conflicts and mental illness.

The fall 2013 training dates are 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays from Oct. 24 to Nov. 21, plus 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 26-27. No session is planned for Thursday, Oct. 31. All trainings take place in Davis.

Applicants must be at least 20 years old, attend all training sessions and commit to one full year of service, which averages six hours per week. Volunteers also are asked to attend regular meetings at Suicide Prevention’s Davis business office.

Applications are available online at www.suicidepreventionyolocounty.org and should be emailed to [email protected].
