Suicide to Hope

Suicide to Hope

This is a one-day workshop, targeted to practitioners who work with individuals who have previously been at risk and are currently safe from suicide.


GOAL: Apply a recovery and growth approach for persons previously at risk of and currently safe from suicide.


Participants will learn to:


  • Describe how suicide experiences provide an opportunity for recovery and growth work
  • Recognize how their Helper Qualities might impact recovery and growth work
  • Understand a schematic of common issues and related recovery and growth opportunities
  • Apply a model for setting recovery and growth goals as well as a framework for monitoring and coordination recovery and growth work.


PROCESS: During suicide to Hope (s2H), participants reflect upon their qualities as helpers—the beliefs, values, and attitudes they bring to the relationship. They also learn about various meanings of suicide experiences and discover the opportunities for recovery and growth they present. More specifically, suicide to Hope is structured around a three-phase Pathway to Hope (PaTH) model. The Understanding Phase focuses on exploring and describing barriers to recovery and growth.


 This establishes a foundation for the Planning Phase involving the formulation of recovery and growth goals and plans.


The Implementing Phase focuses on monitoring progress and reviewing the process. Clinicians and professional helpers who attend a s2H workshop learn how to use this model collaboratively with those they serve. The workshop is highly interactive with a mix of large group and small group discussion and simulations.
