The Suicide Prevention Workshop provided key strategies to help those we care about who may be considering suicide. It was important to hear about misconceptions around suicide and very beneficial to learn skills necessary to be a mental health "lifeguard". As a sorority advisor, I am grateful to be able to better support the collegiate women that I support. I am thankful that my chapter officers and general membership were also able to participate in this worthwhile program.
If You See Something, Say Something" is a clear, and concise presentation in how to recognize signs of suicide. Aside from what to notice in someone's behavior, many resources are offered as hope and help to someone in distress. A very difficult topic to learn about, the session is extremely helpful and important
This was one of the best presentations I have ever listened to, and believe me I have gone to tons of Zoom trainings since the start of coronavirus. Leigh is a dynamic, knowledgeable presenter with heart, who packed an amazing amount of content (and motivation) into a mere 60-minutes. Although I am a mental health professional myself, I still learned a lot from her.
I I feel like I now feel comfortable knowing that I have skills that can save a life. It's no longer a fear of not knowing what to do because I have a plan. The workshop was amazing. Thank you!
An incredible workshop with lessons that need to be heard by all. From start to finish, this talk was filled with facts, guides, and tools which help you feel equipped to help someone who is desperately in need. We are all lifeguards and it is essential that we learn how to access our power to help.
Learning the four steps and dispelling myths are great tools in helping someone with suicidal ideation. But the most telling concept of the course for me, was the information on the Suicide Mind; gaining clarity on what someone with suicidal ideation is thinking. Thank you!
This was an excellent workshop that was factual and honest about the dangers of ignoring warning signs and being uncomfortable with a conversation about suicide. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to be empowered to help save lives.
I really enjoyed the course. It was extremely informative and really shifted my perspective on how I view people with suicidal thoughts. The course taught me how to remove the stigmas surrounding this topic in order to reach the core of the problem. I gained the crucial tools necessary to be a mental health lifeguard.
Gelt Charitable Foundation presented If You See Something, Say Something to our organization. It was very informative and eye opening. Leigh was very organized and thorough and made everyone feel comfortable with such a heavy topic. Thank you, Gelt Charitable Foundation for a great learning experience.
I just participated in the Suicide Prevention program. It was excellent and I have to add that your organization is the best I’ve dealt with for training in years! What a quality operation. Kudos to the team
This was amazing, so clear and helpful. I’ve taken other suicide prevention courses, and by far, this was the clearest and most direct
As a psychologist with an invested interest in mental health- I found the workshop to be both insightful and practical to both my professional and personal interest
I found this workshop extremely educational. Not only as President of my chapter, but a future healthcare worker as well, I found it important that I learn more on how I can help someone that is struggling with mental health. This course opened my eyes to signs I never thought about as well as ways to approach an individual who is dealing with suicidal thoughts. Thank you again!
I am so happy I attended this workshop. I genuinely learned so much. There is so much about suicide that I did not know that I now know. I now know how to recognize red flags and how to approach someone who may be suicidal. This workshop also cleared up a lot of false stigmas. I did not know that you are supposed to actually use the word suicide when addressing someone. Thank you so much for sharing your story and educating others!
I went to the See Something Say Something workshop and it was so amazing! I learned so much on how to assist those with suicidal symptoms to help them get what they need to improve their mental health, from how to be the go-between with a hotline to being an empathic listener. I recommend this workshop to everyone, especially teens! Having this experience strengthens your ability to help people and destigmatize mental health!
We had an amazing experience going through 'If you see something say something.' Gelt was very communicative, quick to response, and listened to feedback. I would highly recommend working with them and hope we can continue our partnership with SDT in the future. Thanks for all you are doing for our students!
Thank you Leigh and the Gelt Charitable Foundation for helping our youth identify some of the red flags and how to ensure safety and support in a time of need. Leigh lef a very interactive and informative training! Our teens very much enjoyed the workshop, and most importantly have gained the proper tools to help save a life
We are so grateful to Leigh and the Gelt Charitable Foundation for our recent suicide awareness online seminar. The session was incredibly informative, relatable, and engaging. With this seminar, our participants really felt empowered to act and respond with the practical skills and knowledge that they gained. Thank you for this gift.

Thank you! The presentation was clear and I especially appreciated how it moved right along and didn't overly dwell on any one of the points. It was a good overview and important information.
Thank you for last night. It was the first time that anyone has been able to shed some light on suicide for me because I battle with the concept so much. It seriously opened my eyes and touched my heart
Thank you to the Gelt Charitable Foundation and Leigh for a fantastic webinar training. Over 60 university students joined us and the feedback was powerful. We will definitely be doing another one
Really really spectacular workshop. It was really informative; all the teachers felt that it was so important
We had Leigh speak to our teens last week. It was very well received by both the parents (many joined too) and the teens themselves”
I really liked it I felt like the information was concise and easy to apply to daily lives without being overloaded with information
I really enjoyed this course. Personally I know people who have struggled with suicide and depression & I think the workshop touched upon great ways to be helpful to those in need
I enjoyed the course very much for many reasons. This is a very important topic that all of us should be educated on, so I liked how personal you made the workshop to apply it to real life scenarios that could be happening with our sisters.
I very much appreciated the course; it was presented clearly and effectively, and was tailored to our nursing audience
The course empowered me to look for red flags in my friends and loved ones and know where to direct them for help. I hope I'll never have to use what I learned, but I'm very glad that I am equipped with these skills and resources just in case
The Gelt Charitable Fund helped us arrange an excellent presentation on Suicide Prevention!
Leigh and Ella were excellent!
Presenter was clear and provided working examples useful to any member of the agency. The presenter was able to connect with participants to provide information to help stabilize clients in our services.
Thank you Gelt Charitable Foundation for a very informative workshop on suicide prevention and for creating much needed awareness.
