Webinar: What Does Postvention Following a Suicide Look Like?

January 24 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm CST

Last updated on January 24th, 2024 at 09:45 am

Summary: Suicide prevention and intervention are critical public health strategies for an issue that according to current US statistics is ever-increasing. How can we help those left behind and grieving for loved ones who have died by suicide?

AgriSafe is proud to host Dr. Frank Campbell, founder of the National Suicidology Training Center and nationally recognized expert on suicidology. It was due to his more than twenty years of working with those bereaved by suicide that he introduced his Active Postvention Model (APM) most commonly known as the LOSS Team (Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors). His work with survivors and victims of trauma has been featured in three Discovery Channel documentaries. Dr. Campbell’s model has been replicated across North America and abroad. In this very special “live only” webinar, Dr. Campbell will discuss the impact of suicide on individuals, communities, and public health.  Postvention is one way a community can organize efforts to help the newly bereaved following a suicide and provide support that can change the legacy of suicide for families and agricultural communities. By attending this presentation, you will help us to reduce stigma on a manner of death that continues to grip our nation that leaves most of us confused on how we can respond to those left behind.

Intended Audience: Anyone who is interested in helping those bereaved by suicide

Objectives: At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to…

  1. List rural states with the highest rates of suicide
  2. Describe the Active Postvention Model
  3. Recognize the ways that suicide impacts all those touched by a loved one who has died by suicide
  4. Provide suggested resources for those bereaved by suicide that can help them in their complicated bereavement process
