Alternatives to Suicide Peer Support Group Facilitator Training


This 3-day training sponsored by the Division of Mental Health and Addition will be held from May 2 - 4, 2022 in Indianapolis and is free of charge thanks to funding from the SAMHSA Garrett Lee Smith State Youth Suicide Prevention grant, A Focus in Community, State & Peer Collaboration: Striving to Achieve Zero Suicides in Indiana. The Alternatives to Suicide approach was developed by the Wildflower Alliance in 2009 as one of the only peer-to-peer groups that focuses primarily on the topic of suicide.

Applicants should meet the following criteria:

  1. have the ability to attend all 3-days,

  2. are interested in starting a support group in their community, and

  3. who have experienced thoughts of suicide in the past.

Please note that if you are not selected to take part in the training on these specific dates, there will be an additional opportunity to participate in September 2022. You are also welcome to reach out with any questions to Michelle Bulington, michelle.bulington@fssa.in.gov.
