ANN ARBOR – The American Indian Health and Family Services of Southeastern Michigan will host Trevor Project Trainings April 28 and 29 for LGBTQ individuals and allies interested in learning about crisis intervention and prevention.
The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services for LGBTQ young people ages 13-24.
The project will provide the Trevor Lifeguard Workshop at 5 p.m. April 28 for attendees to learn about lifesaving resources for LGBTQ youth, how to find resources near them, and will include an on-site training. Dinner will be provided.
Ally trainings will be hosted the following morning April 29 beginning at 8 a.m. Trainings will help allied adults learn about LGBT and two-spirit people with an emphasis on youth, the specific risks and challenges they face and how they can become an ally by knowing valuable resources and strategies. Lunch will be provided.
The following program, the Trevor CARE Trainings, will help adults who work with youth learn to connect, accept, respond and empower young people in crisis. The training will discuss LGBTQ-specific risk factors for suicide, explore protective factors that can lower risks and investigate how to help youth get the support they need.
All trainings will be at the American Indian Health and Family Services building at 4880 Lawndale St., Detroit.
