Conference on Friday, April 10 at the Augusta Civic Center Register Here

The Building Hope Across Populations 2020 - Beyond the Basics in Suicide Prevention conference will be held on Friday, April 10th at the Augusta Civic Center.  Registration is open.

Presented by NAMI Maine

Since its inception in 2003, Maine's annual Beyond the Basics in Suicide Prevention Conference has provided Maine health professionals, educators, clinicians, first responders, and community members with best practice information, guidance and resources in suicide prevention and management efforts.  The conference is designed for an adult audience that has attained basic training and knowledge in suicide and suicide prevention, and wishes to deepen their understanding of prevention and expand their skills set.

Our theme for the 2020 conference is Building Hope Across Populations, and will include a range of informative breakout sessions centered on how to serve Maine's at-risk, diverse, and growing populations.

This year's conference features national experts on inclusive suicide prevention strategies, as well as local community members, professionals, and clinicians who will address suicide prevention, intervention, and post-vention issues.  The program will offer messages of hope and recognize caring citizens who have made a difference in the lives of at-risk Mainers.  Featuring keynote speaker Anneliese Singh.

Registration, conference agenda and additional information is available here.
