Many organizations struggle with people who are experiencing emotional distress. Our training focuses on identifying interpersonal distress signals/warning signs and help people to identify community resources for help.

What about the men, women, and children struggling with suicidal thoughts?

We can help

John Connors has been training people for over 25 years. His expertise has traditionally been sought out to work with service professionals across multiple disciplines. John collaborates closely with his clients and becomes an essential piece of the team’s success.

Recently, he has been asked about training people on social issues, more specifically suicide prevention. Did you know that more Americans die from suicide than homicide? At a point in their careers, many employers, managers, and supervisors from all industries are faced with a suicide situation.

Wouldn’t it be great to be able to identify a person struggling with suicide and have the courage, and training, to approach that person and help?

Courage Through Action


Hopelessness is a terrible state of mind. It is imperative we deliver
messages that give people hope and belonging. This requires courage
and commitment to take necessary action.


Educating people about suicide and not being afraid to reach out
and ask, “Is there anything I can do to help you?”


A change in people’s attitude by recognizing communication,
knowledge and awareness saves lives.

Q: How can we make a difference in someone’s life?

A: The sooner a warning sign of suicidal behavior is detected the better the
outcome of a suicidal crisis.
