Suicide Prevention Classes & Training
NUHOPE and its community partners are proud to offer a number of suicide prevention and/or mental health training and education opportunities throughout Weber and Davis Counties. Our teachers are certified to teach proven, effective courses to help prevent suicide, identify and support loved ones with mental illness, and help communities recover after a suicide loss.
Suicide is the number one cause of death for young people in Utah. To combat that, NUHOPE facilitates Hope Squads in our local schools. Hope Squads are the eyes and ears of a school. They are comprised of students who are trained to watch for at-risk students–provide friendship, identify warning signs, and seek help from adults. Hope Squad advisors train students who have been identified by their classmates as trustworthy peers to serve as Hope Squad members. Through evidence-based training modules, Hope Squad members are empowered to seek help and save a life. Hope Squad members are NOT taught to act as counselors, but rather, are educated on how to recognize signs of suicide contemplation, and how to properly and respectfully report this to an adult.
NUHOPE facilitates Hope Squads in Davis, Ogden, Box Elder and Morgan School Districts, but the program is expanding to schools nationwide. Contact us if you would like information on setting up a Hope Squad at your school.
NUHOPE supports the communities of Northern Utah through a number of outreach efforts including our annual Suicide Awareness Walk; co-hosting town hall meetings with schools, school districts, and communities; and exhibiting at local prevention and recovery, mental health, and other events. If you are interested in NUHOPE exhibiting at your event, please contact us.
Legacy Suicide Survivors Support Network
LEGACY is a non-profit support network for families and friends who have lost loved ones to suicide. Our group is comprised of individuals who have experienced this traumatic event first hand and know the heartbreak and personal suffering that follows. Group members graciously volunteer their time to assist those friends and family members left behind, and give the comfort that only those who have endured such pain can provide.
