Understanding Suicide Prevention

Location: Albuquerque

Note: the re-scheduled date of February 25, 2020

Substance abuse prevention is about strengthening wellness and increasing protective factors in our people, families, and communities. An important area preventionists can contribute to in their community is suicide prevention, especially given the fact suicide shares risk factors with substance misuse and abuse. In 2017, suicide was the first leading cause of death for people ages 5-17 and was the ninth leading cause of death overall in New Mexico. (NM DOH. New Mexico Substance Use Epidemiology Profile, 2018). This training will explore risk and protective factors associated with suicide as well as warning signs. Two evidence-based and internationally recognized best-practice models will be reviewed: ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) from Living Works, and Paul Quinnett’s 13 Ws. We examine these models in the workshop and everyone is given the opportunity to practice the skills in role-plays to see how they feel and how they work. These models can be utilized by anyone, not just behavior health service providers. By expanding your overall prevention knowledge base, this training may open doors for you to collaborate with other people in your community who you have not worked with before.

LGBTQ 101 for Substance Abuse Prevention Specialists

Location: Albuquerque

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning people face special barriers to accessing behavioral health services, including prevention and treatment. At the same time, this is a group of people who are at a disproportionate risk for substance misuse and abuse. Data has shown us that LGBTQ folks are more likely to experience depression, anxiety and suicidal ideation - and to self-medicate with drugs and alcohol. This workshop will give you a chance to familiarize yourself with language, data and etiquette pertaining to this population, and to increase your confidence in working with LGBTQ people in your community. This training will focus on building your capacity to be welcoming and inclusive to people who are in great need of compassionate and effective prevention services.

Responsible Beverage Service: A Vital Tool to Improve Alcohol-Related Outcomes

Location: Santa Fe

Establishments that sell alcohol play a complex role in prevention. Many times, they are seen as a crucial part of the local economy, yet they can also contribute to problems related to excessive drinking and underage drinking in many communities. How can the prevention community effectively work with alcohol establishments to improve alcohol-related outcomes?  This workshop will help you support local businesses who hold liquor licenses to comply with the law and to partner with prevention to improve community well-being. Participants will learn about best practices in preventing sales and service to intoxicated persons and minors in both on and off premise establishments. Several Responsible Beverage Service (RBS) approaches will be introduced, and we will analyze how they might best fit individual community needs. Participants will develop a draft plan for their communities, including needs assessment, education and training strategies. Resource materials will be provided that can be adapted to support program implementation. .

Cultural Considerations When Working With Native Communities in New Mexico

Location: Santa Fe

New Mexico is the ancestral and current homeland of 19 Pueblos, 2 Apache Nations, and the Navajo Nation. Additionally, Albuquerque has one of the highest Native populations in a city in the United States. Though Native people are commonly characterized as one group; such as Native Americans, American Indians, or Indigenous, each Tribe is its own Sovereign nation with its own government structure, cultural practices, language, and land. It is important for those who work with Tribal people to be aware of history, federal policy, Tribal protocols, and current social and political issues. This training will explore all of these areas in an effort to foster productive relationships when doing prevention work in or with Tribal communities.
