Non Profit 101 Workshop
Today I attended with Tory a training on suicide screening and prevention. The training was run by a medical centre in East Providence and it was extremely well-organised and well-run, absolutely awesome to be a part of. I was really grateful to Tory for sharing this opportunity with us interns, and since I'm interested in mental health and crises (and how this intersects w/ clients experiencing homelessness) I was happy to join in. I definitely learned a lot especially how to use an official tool to screen people who might be at risk for committing suicide. It was a heavy topic overall, but a productive way to spend the morning.
Our final meeting was a bit surprising. The announcement of Home to Hope's movement to House of Hope was unforeseen. I'm not exactly sure what to expect next semester, but I am enthusiastic about the prospect of exploring new opportunities.
Besides the announcement, I also thought that the rest of the meeting went well. It was a good time to reflect on our work this semester and I liked that we talked about what our aspirations were are for the future. Finally, talking about our schedules before break was a great idea. We're all on the same page and we can get back to work right away when we are all in Providence again.
