Sally Spencer-Thomas is a clinical psychologist, inspirational international speaker and an impact entrepreneur. Dr. Spencer-Thomas was moved to work in suicide prevention after her younger brother, a Denver entrepreneur,
died of suicide after a difficult battle with bipolar condition. Known nationally and internationally as an innovator in social change, Spencer-Thomas has helped start up multiple large-scale, gap filling efforts in mental health,
including the award-winning campaign Man Therapy and the nation’s first initiative for suicide prevention in the workplace.

▪ Identify and explore clinicians fears
▪ Compassionately elicit expressions of suicidal thought
▪ Formulate a game-plan for crisis when suicide is imminent

▪ Develop a plan to reduce access to lethal means
▪ Effectively use targeted language with suicidal clients that will help you avoid stigma and successfully build collaborative plans for wellbeing
▪ Provide innovative grief support resources that connect clients and clinicians with other survivors of suicide and suicide loss
▪ Feel confident and capable to work with suicidal clients and guide them outof the darkness and back into the light!
