In October 2017, NAMI NH launched the first SurvivorVoices Young Adult Speakers training with six new participants, ages 16-22. This program is designed for both youth 14-18 years of age and young adults 18-25. New speakers are trained safely to share their stories from the heart – they are powerful and will help raise awareness for suicide prevention, reduce stigma around mental illness, and promote healing for all loss survivors. Increasingly all over New Hampshire, youth and young adults want to stand up and talk about suicide to help others. One huge way is by sharing their personal story of suicide loss.

Training Feedback:

Very professional presentation, PowerPoint especially high quality and focused without glitches.

Thank you for addressing male stigma in such a respectful manner! So often, males and associated stigmas are discussed respectfully in general in mental health, at seminars, and even among mental health providers.

Wonderful class. Awesome instructor. Very kind and understanding. Thank you for looking forward to the next class. I learned a lot for my future educational needs and the handouts and presentation was so helpful. Thank you.

Excellent training. One of the best trainings I've been to and actually use what I've learned.

Excellent presenter - open dialogue - and the scenario was wonderful example. Thank you for a great training!

This training session exceeded my expectation of giving me the tools to help myself and others in suicide prevention. Thank you very much

Out of the four suicide trainings I have attended over the past year this is the most informative and applicable one

 

Fantastic resources, exercises, videos - one of the best trainings I've been to in 22 years!

Training Feedback:

Thank you for improving my sensitivity and knowledge to help my community and family.

This opened up a new world for me and is very valuable for my age group (I am 85).

Everyone could benefit from this training.

Training is robust and very informative. Trainers are passionate about the topic and it drives collaborative discussions that are helpful in the learning process.

Thank you for your preparation, knowledge/expertise, and commitment/dedication to the topic of suicide postvention.

I learned a lot and liked finding more about state-wide efforts and things that are already in place. It's good to know we have resources and a network of supports.

Excellent training! I feel more prepared to support people, families, and communities affected from death by suicide.
