Certified Peer Support Specialist Training

A Certified Peer Support Specialist is an individual who uses their lived experience in recovery from mental illness and/or substance use disorder, in addition to skills learned in a formal training, to deliver services promoting recovery and resiliency. The goal of Latino Behavioral's ECAP (Peer Support Specialists) training is to provide information and tools necessary to empower and encourage people in recovery from substance use and mental health to continue on their path to recovery.

Suicide Prevention in the workplace

Suicide prevention is personal, but it is also a public health issue, which affects work, communities, and families. By improving an employee's understanding of mental health and suicide prevention, they can be a key partner in the effort to prevent suicides by promoting mental health and encouraging early identification and intervention. Suicide prevention in the workplace trains employees at all levels to appreciate the critical need for suicide prevention while creating open dialogue and encouraging critical thinking about mental health. The vision of suicide prevention in the workplace is to cultivate a community of employees who are aspiring to eliminate the impacts of suicide.

QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) Suicide Prevention Training

QPR is a suicide prevention training for participants to be able to recognize the warning signs of suicide and question, persuade, and refer people at risk for suicide for help. QPR does not intend to provide counseling or therapy, but rather, QPR intend to offer hope through positive actions. Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Each year thousands of Americans, like you, are saying "Yes" to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor.
