Suicide and Emotional Pain – How To Recognize and Support Individuals In Crisis
With Brett Scudder
Suicide and Emotional Pain - How to Recognize and Support Individuals In Crisis
In December, the CDC released data showing suicide is the tenth leading cause of death, and rising. Creating a culture open to talking about mental health and suicide prevention is critical.
How can you recognize if someone is in emotional distress, even if they aren’t talking about suicide? How do you meet people where they’re at and acknowledge their pain without trying to fix it?
Brett Scudder (pictured here) is a counselor, speaker, and suicide attempt survivor. After one of his suicide attempts in 2005, he dedicated his life full-time to helping people prevent or manage emotional pain and crisis to prevent suicide ideations and attempts.
He is a certified Mental Health, Psychological, Trauma and Suicide First Aid Practitioner who provides services and support to people worldwide.
“I’ve heard Brett present several times, and I’m always very impressed with how candidly he speaks about suicide. It’s very powerful.” — Pam Solomon, NAMI-NYC staff
