Room to Breathe

Room to Breathe

Thursday, May 4, 2017
7:00pm to 8:30am
Kitchener Public Library, Main Branch Theater
85 Queen St N, Kitchener

Room To Breathe is a movie about using mindfulness in a challenging school environment. With a backdrop of high stress and anxiety levels, limited student focus and increasing suspensions and dropouts, overwhelmed administrators introduce mindfulness to provide students with the social, emotional and attentional skills that they need to succeed.

Following the movie screening, a panel (youth who uses mindfulness on himself, a parent who uses mindfulness with her children, a teacher who uses mindfulness in class and a clinician who uses mindfulness in her practice) will discuss their experiences with mindfulness and introduce participants to mindfulness practices that parents/caregivers can try at home.

Admission is free and seating is limited. Registration required through EventBrite.

Presented in partnership with Lutherwood, KW Counselling, CMHA-WW, Waterloo Region District School Board, Waterloo Catholic District School Board and Waterloo Region Suicide Prevention Council.#WRBEWELL

SafeTalk Workshop for Parents & Caregivers

SafeTalk Workshop for Parents & Caregivers

Tuesday, May 2, 2017
5:30pm to 9:00pm
Lutherwood
285 Benjamin Road, Waterloo

Discounted rate of $25/participant

When someone is thinking of suicide it’s not that they want to die; it’s that they don’t know how to live.
safeTALK is a half-day, evidence-based suicide-awareness workshop that prepares anyone 15 years of age and older to become a suicide-alert helper. Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive. safeTALK-trained helpers can recognize these invitations and take action by connecting a person at risk with life-saving intervention resources, such as caregivers trained in ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training.)

Workshop Learning Goals
Over the course of their training, safeTALK participants will learn to:

  • Notice and respond to situations where suicide thoughts might be present
  • Recognize that invitations for help are often overlooked
  • Move beyond the common tendency to miss, dismiss, and avoid suicide
  • Apply the TALK steps: Tell, Ask,
  • Listen, and KeepSafe
  • Know community resources and how to connect someone with thoughts of suicide to them for further help

This session is led by Shawna Percy,

Sponsored by Lutherwood and Waterloo Region Suicide Prevention Council, and supported by the Lead Agency Advisory Council members.

Presented in partnership with Carizon, KW Counselling, CMHA-WW, Waterloo Region District School Board, Waterloo Catholic District School Board and Waterloo Region Suicide Prevention Council. #WRBEWELL
