Location: Mercy Conference and Retreat Center / 2039 N. Geyer Rd. 63131

Time: Check-in: 8:30am / Workshop: 9:00am – Noon (Lunch not provided.)

There is little more frightening for a youth minister than when a young person confides that they are having thoughts of harming or killing themselves.  This workshop is intended for church pastors, youth ministers, and directors of religion education to help prepare them to respond to youth in their fellowship who might be experiencing depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts. Participants will be educated on the signs of adolescent depression, anxiety, and suicidality.  They will learn basic pastoral intervention that can help keep a youth safe, and will be provided community mental health resources to support the youth and the family.

Cost: $40.00 (Includes handouts & a certificate of attendance. Light beverages & snacks will be provided.)
