JLI and CTeens Collaborate On Suicide Prevention

A new course by The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI) on suicide prevention for teens, featuring top specialists in the field, is being offered in partnership with CKids and CTeens.

This Tuesday, The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute (JLI) will be offering online training for parents and the wider community on how to provide emotional support to teens during this crisis.

This interactive training will offer evidence-based guidance from the experts about how to be present for your teens and keep them emotionally safe during these turbulent times.

The training will be led by top professionals in the field, including Dr. Jonathan Singer, president of the American Association of Suicidology and professor at Loyola University in Chicago who specializes in family and school interventions for adolescents; Dr. Bella Schanzer, Chief Medical Officer of Telehealth On-Call (previously medical director of Baylor Psychiatric Clinic in Houston); and Dr. Lisa Jacobs, Child Psychiatry Fellow at Stanford University and founder and editor-in-chief of Penndulum Medical Magazine.

Participants will learn how to build rapport with their teens, help them develop self-esteem, learn to recognize warning signs, assess risk, create a safety plan, and discover available resources to support teens through these difficult times. This program is part of JLI’s youth suicide prevention initiative, My Life is Worth Living, and is being offered in partnership with Cteen and Ckids.
