Soul Shop is an interactive, evidence-based suicide prevention training program designed specifically for congregational leaders and volunteers. Grounded in scripture, the training enables church volunteers and congregants to: * become comfortable with being suicide-safe in their interactions, language, sermons and programs * learn to look for warning signs * explore cultural and demographic factors * utilize language to talk about suicide * understand what to do when someone is suicidal * identify who to approach that might be at risk The end goal is that churches would become "suicide-safe" as ultimately, church should be the safest place for those struggling with suicidal thoughts. Cost is $25 per person including session materials and snacks. Scholarships available.
