The Bradley Conference Fall 2021 series is grant-supported by the Rhode Island Department of Health Violence and Injury Prevention Program and focuses on Suicide Prevention and Response.


Suicide: Prevention, Screening and Response Training for the General Public


Every 11 minutes, someone in the United States dies by suicide. Suicide is a preventable public health problem and prevention depends in large part on appropriate screening and response. Knowing a few simple questions to ask may save someone’s life. 


The clinicians at Bradley Hospital designed a training program specifically for individuals who do not have a background in mental health. This class is offered to anyone who may wish to learn more about suicide prevention. Educators, public safety personnel, family members, health care workers, faith leaders, transportation workers, food service employees, community members – anyone who interacts with children or adults will benefit.


Suicide: Prevention, Screening and Response Training for the General Public



Presenters: Scott Sylvester, LMHC, Kimberly Lafountain, LMHC, and Margaret Paccione-Dyszlewski, PhD


In accordance with COVID-19 safety protocols, all Fall 2021 sessions will be held virtually over ZOOM. Participants will receive course materials electronically.


There is no cost as the program has been grant-funded.
