Idaho Suicide Prevention Program Training
Ranging from 90 minutes to a half a day, suicideTALK invites all participants—regardless of prior training or experience—to become more aware of suicide prevention opportunities in their community. Dealing openly with the stigma around suicide, this exploration focuses upon the question “Should we talk about suicide?” By looking at this question in a number of different ways, session members can discover some of the beliefs and ideas about suicide in their communities—and in themselves.

Mental Health First Aid
Mental Health First Aid and Youth Mental Health First Aid (for adults who work with young people) is an 8 hour course which trains you to assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. You will learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help.
- Spanish: The Adult or Youth MHFA curriculum in Spanish (no extra content).
- Veterans: Honoring our active duty and veteran military service members includes making sure they have access to mental health services and support when they return home. Veteran MHFA is designed to equip military members and their families with the tools they need to recognize mental health challenges and access services in their communities.
- Older Adults: Cognitive decline isn’t the only brain health challenge affecting older adults- depression and anxiety occur among seniors as well. If you serve or care for older adults, this module is for you!
- Higher Education: College and graduate school can be intensely stressful, no doubt about it. For many, the school presents the challenge of living on one’s own for the first time, in addition to academic stress. This module is tailored to the needs of RAs, University staff, and students themselves.
- Rural: Access to services in remote rural and frontier counties can be logistically challenging- not to mention the challenge of fighting stigma in a small town where everyone knows your business! This MHFA class matches the strengths of rural communities with their unique barriers to accessing care.
- First Responders: Law enforcement, firefighters, EMTs, paramedics, and other first responders face unique challenges in their encounters with the public, many of whom may be in crisis. They may also be exposed to many traumatic events in the course of their work. This module focuses on strategies for first responders encountering someone with a mental health challenge or crisis, and extra self-care resources for those on the front lines.
