Faculty Well-Being: Working Minds Part 2 - Suicide Prevention in the Workplace

This is a past event.

This is the last half of a 2-part workshop. Please register for this event on the calendar listing for part 1. If you missed the first half of this presentation, you should start with part 1 next semester rather than attending out of order.

Presented by Tami Long from UAB Employee Assistance & Counseling Center (EACC).  Did you know individuals with depression miss an average of 4.8 days of work each year and experience 11.5 days of reduced work productivity? What if you could create a “safe space” for dialogue regarding workplace mental health challenges? In this seminar, participants will learn the skills needed to proactively address the early warning signs of mental health and suicide in the workplace.

Objectives:
o    Educate and create awareness of suicide prevention
o    Create a forum for dialogue and critical thinking about workplace mental health challenges
o    Promote help-seeking and help-giving in the workplace

Presenter:  Tami Long, PhD, LPC, CEAP
