|“Coping in a Crisis”
In response to the global suicide-related threats arising from the pandemic, the Baton Rouge Crisis Intervention Center received a COVID-19 Relief Grant
from the Capital Area United Way (CAUW) and through our National Suicidology Training Center developed a community-based training called “Coping in a Crisis.”
This CAUW sponsored training was initially provided to front line persons who interact with the CAUW Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed (ALICE) population and
has been modified to a virtual three part video series. This training provides basic information about working with people in a crisis and a
deeper dive into community-based suicide prevention efforts.
Three videos are now freely available from this training. It is recommended you watch the videos in the order they are presented below:
Video 1: Introduction and Crisis Theory
Video 2: Suicide statistics and theories of suicide
Video 3: Supporting those thinking about suicide
If you would like to share the information about these videos, this flyer contains all the salient information.
Please note: The BRCIC website is not intended to provide help in a crisis.
If you are feeling suicidal or need help for yourself or someone you know, please consult IASP's Suicide Prevention Resources to find a crisis center anywhere in the world.
