Help Us Return to Zambia in 2018

zambia Oct 16, 2017

Will you please consider helping us to return to Zambia in 2018 to once again provide Suicide Intervention, Chaplaincy, Substance and Gender Based Violence Training? This is a country of 15 million people with only one mental health facility in the country in Lusaka with 8 clinicians of which we have trained 6 of the 8 on our last visit. The clinicians have now been disbursed through the country and we will need to go to multiple locations.

On our last trip we co-launched Celebrate Recovery with local individuals which now has positioned ten (10) churches that will become part of a delivery infrastructure of services into the Community in coordination with the Ministry of Health. We are also working with the military as well as the office of the President.

You can visit our blog posts on Zambia to find out more about our last trip and to view interviews of the clinicians at

asist nccd safetalk zambia Jun 26, 2017

Just got a surprise! The LivingWorks International Trainer Conference just completed in Atlanta Georgia where my good friend and fellow Trainer, John Avery, retired Sergeant Salinas Police Department was in attendance. John was part of our team that brought safeTALK and Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) to the nation of Zambia for the first time.

Zambia is a country of 15 million and has only one mental health facility (Chainama Hospital) in Lusaka at which (at the time) were 8 mental health professionals for the country. We had six out of the eight in our class.  I have been informed by our contact, Benjamin Samusiko that a number of these clinicians are now disbursed throughout the country.

LivingWorks included our outreach to Zambia in their Annual Report for 2016. You can download the report below and check out page 45! Thanks for sending to us John.
