I am looking to provide some type of layperson crisis training for my Sponsors. After recently coming into my ministry position I asked my sponsors, "If a student came to you and said their girlfriend was pregnant, or they wanted to kill themselves, would you feel comfortable handling that?" The answer was a resounding "No."
So, I have been searching for free, or low-cost, training videos I could use with my sponsors. I have found a number of suicide prevention websites, but I need more than just suicide training. And I would also like something a little more flexible than bringing in a trainer for a one day class.
Thank you all in advance for your help.
