CISPC is offering trainings to ALL PUBLIC SCHOOLS on the Cape and Islands

This year the coalition sent out letters to all Cape & Islands Public School Superintendents offering them the opportunity to collaborate with Riverside Trauma Center and C.I.S.P.C. Together we are offering a training for school personnel. This is a S.P.R.C. approved training:  Suicide Prevention: A Gatekeeper Training for School Personnel.

Later this month Mashpee Public Schools will participate in the first training. The Coalition is paying for this training opportunity and we hope it will be the first step in our regions schools. Click here to read the letter and if you have a working relationship with a local school please pass it along to a superintendent.
