Why recovery and growth? 
Recovery and growth approaches have demonstrated significant positive impacts in mental health, substance abuse, and trauma but have not been developed for use with those recovering from suicide. 

Overall Mission:
To strengthen hope by increasing the ability of helpers to hear, understand and work with the wants and needs of persons recovering from and growing through suicide.

Learning Goal: To encourage and enable participants to apply a recovery and growth oriented approach to working with persons previously at risk and currently safe from suicide.

Participant Objectives:

As a result of participation in this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Describe how suicide experiences provide an opportunity for recovery and growth work;
  • Recognize how their helping qualities might impact recovery and growth work; 
  • Understand a schematic of common issues and related recovery and growth opportunities; 
  • Apply a model for setting recovery and growth goals; and, a framework for monitoring and coordinating recovery and growth work.
