Michelle Walker, Vice President of Finance and Administration at SSC


Michelle's bio

Approximately 80%of all people who die by suicide are of working age (18-65) making the workplace the most cross-cutting system for suicide prevention, intervention and crisis response. Over two-thirds of the American population participates in the workforce; we often spend more waking time working each week than we do with our families. When a workplace is working well, it is often a place of belonging and purpose — qualities of our well-being that can sustain us when life gets unmanageable. Many workplaces also provide access to needed mental health resources through employee assistance programs and peer support. Because suicidal thoughts are usually invisible, employers usually assume “it doesn’t happen here” — until it does. Co-workers then are often forgotten grievers after a suicide. Rarely, until now, did employers consider their role in suicide prevention.

In this session we will examine the role of the HR Professional and the Employer in suicide prevention, discuss the 8 guiding principles in making suicide a health and safety priority for employers, and study the 9 best practices for building protective factors in the workplace.    HR Professionals will be better equipped to help make the workplace a better and safer place for its employees.



James Cameron, Founder of Security Concepts Group

James' bio


SCG's approach is to decrease vulnerability and increase survivability, with our comprehensive P.AC.E. (Prepare, Action, Care, Evacuate) and Management training programs.    Mr. Cameron will review best practices and how a business can be best prepared for a situation of this nature.


SCG's training has been developed based on their personal lessons learned from being involved as first responders to multiple real-world mass casualty events.  While others give seminars on what "the book answer" says to be correct, they teach and instruct on what actually works, from their first-hand experience.

Mounting tragic events highlight the growing security and safety issues.  This is especially true for soft targets such as; businesses, universities, schools, public events and places of worship.  SCG’s approach is to decrease vulnerability and increase survivability, with their comprehensive training program.
