Training and Events
ASIST is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first-aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may be at risk of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety. Although ASIST is widely used by healthcare providers, participants don't need any formal training to attend the workshop-- ASIST can be learned and used by anyone.

#ChannelKindness in KC
Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation, NAMI Johnson County, Mental Health America of the Heartland, and Johnson County Mental Health will co-host a discussion focused on how parents and other caring adults can help support our young people's mental wellness.
The event will highlight the findings of Born This Way Foundation’s recently released survey, Kind Communities: A Bridge to Youth Mental Wellness, followed by a parent testimonial by Dr. Arkin, a panel discussion and Q + A. Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn more about local mental wellness resources in their community and will be eligible to win a pair of tickets to Lady Gaga's Joanne World Tour concert on Wednesday, November 15th at the Sprint Center.
The event is part of Born This Way Foundation’s Channel Kindness Tour – a series of activations, youth-led service events, and community gatherings that are organized to coincide with Lady Gaga’s Joanne World Tour. KSPRC's Monica Kurz will be one of many local resources tabling this event.
