  • Mr. Brett A. Scudder introduces The Suicide Prevention Institute

    in Lifestyle

    It is with great anticipation and humility that Mr. Brett A. Scudder will announce and introduce the Suicide Prevention Institute, and the work being done to provide quality real-life certification training courses for non-mental health professionals across the US. The challenges being faced by many communities is that access to mental health professionals is very limited and time delayed. People in crisis sometimes needs someone to just listen and help them navigate the maze of services, programs and mental health conditions that may exist and/or arise out of their crisis.


    With trained mental health and suicide first aiders on the ground in communities, the access to someone with basic first aid knowledge of mental health and mental illnesses can save many lives before they get into crisis stage/mode.


    Some of the training courses to be offered are in various in Mental/Behavioral Health, suicide prevention, domestic violence and trauma for non-mental health professionals.


    We look forward to the partnership and collaboration with the institute and expanding on both efforts to reach, teach and empower more people and communities. Listen the presentation to learn more about this important effort and work being done by the institute. There will be more information provided as the institute finalizes their website and social media.

    FALLING APART- SUICIDE AWARENESS & PREVENTION.

    in Current Events

    Suicide is one of our most preventable form of death and yet it is the second cause of death for Ohio teens. September is Suicide Prevention & Awareness Month. Real Talk Live 216 wants to talk about this topic that many individuals at times really DON'T want to talk about but it's a conversation that is desperately needs        to take place rather SOONER than LATER.


    Many experts have said that a suicidal person may not ask for help, but that doesn't mean that help isn't wanted. Most people who commit suicide don't want to die—they just want to stop  ...


    On Saturday, September 6, 2014 at 7:30pm EST Real Talk Live 216 will be having an open dialogue on Suicide Awareness & Prevention and would like for each and everyone of you to join us as we bring forth important educational information and resources on this topic. Our Special Guest for the evening will be Tiffany Washington and Andrea Floro from LifeAct. Ms. Washington will be sharing her heart-warming story with the Real Talk Live 216 team and listening audience. Feel free to call in LIVE to speak with us and or guest, ask questions or give your comments at (646) 929-0243.

    SISFI's Suicide Awareness and Prevention Jan 2015 NY Tour Launch

    in Lifestyle

    SISFI is hosting our next Suicide Awareness and Prevention NY Tour January 4th – 31st 2015 across NYC, Long Island and Westchester to bring more awareness, services, programs, healing, resources and support to people facing serious life and emotional challenges, human suffering with suicide ideations, and supporting families who lost loved ones to suicide. This tour follows up on the great work with accomplished with the Sept. 17th – Oct 3rd 2014 tour where we hosted 16 community workshops, 17 radio shows, 3 community luncheons and private workshops with orgs and groups. We met 482 survivors (attempted and lost loved ones) locally through the tour and our Facebook account has generated over 500 new friends (mainly survivors) as a result of the outreach and promotions of awareness we’ve done since the last tour.


    And so we took what we learnt from meeting and talking with survivors to plan the contents and structure of the next tour in January by making it about healing and wellness. The theme of this tour is “Healing and Wellness for Survivors”. Many of the survivors we met during the September-October tour are still hurting, struggling and crying out for help in facing the challenges of living. Many have never reported their attempts nor struggles dealing with their losses. Many sought help and wasn’t able to get it. Their cries resonated with us and we wanted to make sure our follow up efforts would be that of healing and comfort for them.


    We are continuing the work and efforts of bringing more education, awareness, resources and training on the ground in communities so we can be more proactive and equipped in responding to those with emotional distress and suffering to prevent suicide.
