Back by popular demand, Dr. Kathleen Stephany from Douglas College will host another dynamic session on suicide and the workplace.

This webinar is designed to provide individuals and organizations with practical information and insights on how to help someone who is suicidal. Over 94% of past webinar participants agreed or strongly agreed they learned something from the webinar that was useful in their work and/or studies.
