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.
