How to Get Connected to Our Programs

There are a few different ways you can get connected to some support with us. Some of our programs do require an intake appointment. (For more information about how to complete an intake, check out “Intake Information” below.) We have many drop-in programs that you can use right away, without having to complete an intake. Some drop-in programs require registration. Please see more information about each drop-in program below. Check out the calendar below to find out what’s happening this month and come join us!

Intake Information

The group intake session has limited space and operates on a first-come, first served model. Make sure you come early to ensure you get a spot! Click here to check out this document for more info about our intake session. If you have any further questions, check out the FAQ at the end of this page, or e-mail: [email protected] and we will be happy to help!

Skills for Safer Living

Thursdays, 12:30-2:30 pm
Next Cycle: September 19th – December 12th

*Interested participants can be added to waitlist*

The Skills for Safer Living group focuses on living life more safely. It offers skills to help participants learn to identify needs, regulate emotions, problem solve when distressed, and improve one’s effectiveness in relationships. This program invites the participant to consider engaging with life and consider thinking about the future differently. The participant will also learn to name their moments of control when they find themselves in a moment of emotional crisis. What makes the group unique is the understanding that every participant in the room identifies as a suicide attempt survivor and wants to live a safer, more meaningful life.
