PETROLIA, ON Sarah Milner, Interim Executive Director of the Central Lambton Family Health Team (CLFHT), announced today that the CLFHT will be offering a SafeTALK Training program to residents of Central Lambton County. The training will be provided through the Sarnia Lambton Suicide Prevention Committee and will prepare the community to respond to persons with thoughts of suicide and connect them with suicide prevention sources.

By bringing the community together for support it is our hope that we can heighten awareness of and identify those who may have thoughts of suicide.”
